ThirdWindCoverThird Wind represents for me the culmination of an exciting four-year effort.  After publishing my first novel in 2009, I set out in my second effort to stretch my capabilities and further develop my talents as a serious writer.  With Third Wind I had several significant goals:  (1) confront head-on, in a very serious way, the themes of climate change and a dysfunctional federal government that no longer serves its citizens; (2) research and write intelligently about wind energy, a subject in which I had no prior experience; and (3) weave these “big picture” themes into a captivating story rich with believable, memorable characters.

When confronting controversial issues, there is always the risk of getting preachy or turning off readers who might not agree.  I have tried to avoid that by weaving the themes into the plot and characters.  As always, I found the creative process quite cathartic; I write, after all, because I have stuff to say.

From this moment on it is for readers to decide whether I’ve succeeded in my goals.  I invite you to plunge into Third Wind, and I’m confident you’ll find the experience worthwhile.

Purchase Third Wind on or in the CreateSpace eStore.  The novel is available both in trade paperback and for Kindle.

One thought on “Third Wind: A Novel

  1. Roger,
    I’ve read your novel. Thank you for the kind acknowledgement at the end.
    I enjoyed it. It is both an expression of despair at the current state of the nation and a vision of the enduring potential of individuals and communities to do better. I hope our future doesn’t come to this and perhaps enough people will have the same concerns and fears you’ve expressed and act to make the changes that are necessary.

    All the best,
    Peter Gleick
