Officially, Shane Peltzer had walked into the Antarctic interior to his death and reporter JP Weiscarver has no reason to suspect otherwise until the unwitting intervention of a penguin. With his nose for news compelling him to take a closer look, JP sets about ferreting out a story on the world’s coldest, highest and windiest continent. JP Weiscarver often says the most rewarding aspect of a reporter’s job is the opportunity it affords one to experience new things, different places and intriguing people. Such has never been more valid than when the journalist from Oldport, a small city on the Gulf of Mexico, earns a chance to work in Antarctica for a summer season. While JP enjoys the remarkable scenery and people of the Ice, he still manages to stumble upon the story of a mysterious disappearance, written off a year earlier as an accident. Exploring possible crimes is not his job here and he’s not sure everyone wants the truth uncovered.

About the Author:

Steve Martaindale likes to describe his specialization as generalist, saying his interest in many things, even though master of few, proved beneficial as a newspaper reporter and editor. His more than 20 years of working in small daily newspapers has been punctuated with stints as diverse as running a courier service, volunteer firefighter, managing a condominium, delivering flowers, selling souvenirs in a national park and working as a journalist in Antarctica. That breadth of experience has paid off again as Martaindale transitions from fact to fiction. He draws on associations with a wide range of people to apply reality to his characters and their stories. He and his wife, Leah, reside wherever they desire and enjoy a daughter, a son-in-law, a grandson and absolutely no more pets. “The Reporter and the Penguin” is the third of the JP Weiscarver series. The first two – known to Steve simply as “Ferret” and “Hurricane,” were published under one cover, “The Reporter, a Ferret and a Hurricane.” It is available through Amazon or the author’s web site, www.stevemartaindale.com.
