As Christopher navigates through a strange world with the help of his teacher, Ms. Siobhan, he dedicates himself to figuring out the culprit behind the death of Wellington, a neighbor’s beloved pet dog. In the process, he finds out more about his past and the secrets those he meets may be keeping.
Will Fleck will be performing as Christopher along with Emily Loucks as Siohban and Graham Nott as Ed. Starcevich will be directing the performance with Mark Valentine and Richard Stephens as assistant directors.
Author pens new book in PI series
Wayne Pinger, a retired engineer/pilot and author, has penned another book in his action-adventure fiction work.
“Maddie’s Run” is part of Pinger’s latest “Carter Smithson PI” series.
Set on the North Olympic Peninsula — specifically Sequim and Port Angeles — Carter Smithson starts a small detective agency. Just as he is about to open his doors for business, his daughter, Maddie, along with the rest of her high school basketball team, is kidnapped.
After the publication of his first book in 2018, “Angel’s Diamonds,” which was featured in a Lifelong Journey article in the Peninsula Daily News and Sequim Gazette, Pinger completed “Angel’s Treasure” and “Angel’s Odyssey,” all part of his “Angel’s Alaska Trilogy.”
Now, after relocating to Grants Pass, Ore., from Sequim, the author continues to work on his detective series, which is available on Amazon Books.
