My website was hacked while I was off taking care of my new knee. Thanks to my webmaster, Wess Willis, it’s back up and running. I still have to go through it to make sure everything is here. If not, I’ll have to add new things. That will have to wait until after the holidays. […]
Eric, where have you been! I haven’t been here, that’s for sure. On October 14th, two weeks before my birthday, I went into the hospital to have my left knee replaced. It had been bothering me for years, causing a lot of pain and making walking difficult. I used to love to go hiking. In […]
All my fans are heading back to school. Time for me to get back to business. I spent most of this week working on a book about bicycling in Portland. Portland is a great city for bicycling. You see bicycles everywhere. Sometimes there are more bikes on the street than cars. The story I’m working […]

Yow! Has it been that long since I posted anything? I went on a cruise along the Inland Waterway, from Charleston to Florida. I still have to post some of the photographs. Then the holidays hit. Once you get out of the habit of posting, it’s hard to get back. Okay, I’m back. No excuses.
I received the most wonderful letter yesterday from Sasha Lauterbach, the librarian at the Cambridge Friends School in Cambridge, MA. Sasha is going to send me pictures of the Hershel chair and the goblin puppets. I can’t wait to see them. Sasha has given me permission to post her letter. I’ll post the chair and […]
We had a wonderful time during our three-day holiday at Yachats on the Central Oregon coast. A pod of gray whales stays offshore year-round. On a good day you can see their spouts just beyond the surf. Conditions have to be right. If there’s too much wind and the water is choppy, their spouts are […]
We are taking a short holiday at Yachats, on the Oregon Coast. It really hasn’t been such a great summer. It has been unseasonably, record-breakingly hot. Now we’re dealing with the smoke from terrible forest fires in Central Oregon and Washington. It will be good to breathe sea air. There’s also a pod of gray […]
I did my first author program of the season yesterday afternoon in Camas, Washington at the beautiful Camas Public Library. I felt like an ancient fossil since the two highly talented writers presenting with me—Katy Towell and E.S. Gibson—were just starting their careers. It was an exciting afternoon. I learned a lot, especially about using […]
Yikes! This can’t be! Has it been this long since I’ve posted a blog entry? I promise never to let so much time go by again. Now I have to think about something to write about. The problem is, I haven’t been writing much this summer. I usually don’t. Who wants to spend the day […]
