Busy Sunday Coming Up

If you’re going to be in the Portland area on Sunday, you’ll have three chances to meet me and hear some stories. I’ll be at Green Bean Books from 11:00 to noon.  From noon to 4:00 I’ll be down at the Historical Society autographing with lots of other Oregon authors. That’s always a great event. […]

In Recovery

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 […]

You see bicycles everywhere. Sometimes there are more bikes on the street than cars. The story I’m working […]

Back Again

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.
