About his latest, The Day Old Faithful Stopped
Old Faithful geyser is a national treasure that has been erupting every hour or so for more than a hundred years in Yellowstone National Park—entertaining millions of people in the process each year. So, when the geyser suddenly stops one summer day, it is not only national news but a national crisis. National Park Service Biologist Parker Quinn is called in to solve the mystery, but before the answer to the dormant geyser is found the Quinn children will help solve not one mystery but two! The Day Old Faithful Stopped is Book 1 in award-winning Oklahoma author Roy Deering’s new National Park Mystery Series.
