In this companion short story to the Storm Ketchum Adventures series of cozy island mysteries, a stolen item is recovered and a Victorian lesson is relearned. Ketch, a new and damaged emigre to North Carolina’s picturesque Outer Banks, simply wants to be left alone. Now that he’s finally where his soul belongs, he thinks he doesn’t need anyone but his dog. But in the tradition of Scrooge, he learns otherwise at the annual Banker celebration of Olde Christmas. Join Ketch and his loyal dog Jack as they embark on a winter journey of self-discovery and redemption on historic Hatteras Island, where intrigue (and Old Buck) could be just around the next corner.

About the Author
Garrett lives in upstate New York, where he and his wife serve as the housekeeping staff for two rather spoiled dogs. He has degrees in biology and computer science. After a career that ranged from testing experimental drugs (legal ones, and not on himself!) to developing computer operating system software, he decided to retire from the real world and try his hand at writing fiction. Garrett lived in coastal North Carolina for a while some years back, and the current focus of his writing is a place that’s very special to him, the Outer Banks region of North Carolina, which he still visits as often as possible. PORT STARBIRD is his first published novel, and PORT OF REFUGE is the second of the Storm Ketchum Adventures. Garrett is now working on his third novel – keep a weather eye out for it!
