He’s had a picture book called 30 Minutes Over Oregon making the rounds of editors and getting the best rejections you can imagine (and yes, there are good rejections). The book is about a little known incident in WWII. I was familiar with it, but then again, I’m a native Oregonian. (Hm, I wonder if a more exciting title would help? I mean, I wouldn’t read a book called 30 Minutes Over Iowa or 30 Minutes Over [Name of State Here] because that doesn’t grab me.)
You can read more about the book and efforts to get it published here.
