Finding Clarity

Finding Clarity

In the early 2000’s, I traveled to Humboldt County and the Humboldt Redwoods State Park to visit friends, who left San Francisco to live closer to nature and in the heart of the “Emerald Triangle.” During the visit, we had a harrowing encounter that sowed the seeds for Finding Clarity.

Love and hate–opposite emotions drive Zoe and Jason out of San Francisco and into the wilds of Humboldt County.

Zoe has always had to look out for her little sister, Clarity. When Zoe learns Clarity is in trouble with a marijuana cult, she rushes to the rescue, not realizing what might happen. As she leaves San Francisco and drives north, Zoe leaves behind all that she knows and ventures into a mysterious world of prehistoric redwoods and dangerous drug-runners.

Jason works narcotics with the SFPD, but when he’s offered the chance to avenge his kid sister’s drug-related death, he has to take it. Now he’s returned to the land where he grew up, working undercover inside a marijuana cult to bust the notorious drug trafficker he blames for killing his sister.

As events unfold, circumstances bring Zoe and Jason together. It’s only through their shared struggle to survive that they find the clarity they need to free themselves of their pasts and face the future together.
