Portlandtown: A Tale of the Oregon Wyldes
St. Martin's Griffin
October 2012

Welcome to Portlandtown, where no secret is safe—not even those buried beneath six feet of Oregon mud.

Joseph Wylde isn’t afraid of the past, but he knows some truths are better left unspoken. When his father-in-law’s grave digging awakens more than just ghosts, he invites the former marshal into his home hoping a booming metropolis and two curious grand twins will be enough to keep the old man out of trouble. Unfortunately, the marshal’s past soon follows, unleashing a terrible storm on a city already knee deep in floodwaters. As the dead mysteriously begin to rise it’s up to Joseph and his family to find the truth before an unspeakable evil can spread across the West and beyond.

The rumors are true: I wrote a cookbook. About fish. It's pretty good, actually, although I may be a little biased. 

Fish on a First-Name Basis
Thomas Dunne/St. Martin's Press
April 2006

What’s in a name? If  you’re a fish quite a bit. History, mythology, marketing—you’ll find each in the names of everyday seafood, although sometimes it’s what you don't find that’s most interesting. With Fish on a First-Name Basis author Rob DeBorde has crafted an indispensable scrapbook of seafood science, fish-market full disclosures, essential cooking tips, and even the truth behind a few underwater urban legends. 

Fish contains more than a hundred mouthwatering recipes, from classic fish-and-chips, lobster rolls, and crab fritters to Scalloped Ceviche and Cinnamon Crunch Tilapia. And with more than two hundred illustrations, photographs, and diagrams showing you exactly where to cut, crack, or shuck, Fish is a treat for the eyes as well as the stomach.

Informative, witty, and easy to read, Fish on a First-Name Basis is a must-read whether you’re a seafood fanatic or a fish-phobic first-timer.

One novel and one cookbook—not the longest of bibliographies, but it's a start. I also wrote fifty-some episodes of Good Eats and penned a few foodie magazine articles. And let's not forget all those webisodes of Deep Fried, Live! with Tako the Octopus and the movie scripts that never got made. And Star Trek. I contributed a story to one episode of Star Trek: Voyager. Ta-da!
