Summer Writer's Institute

I had the great privilege to be the guest author at Harrison High School's Summer Writer's Institute last Friday. I spoke to two groups of young writers and was very impressed with the depth of their questions as well as their writing. In telling my own story, I hope to inspire them to keep at their craft. The school will be using Weeping Under This Same Moon as part of the curriculum and I'll be back in May to talk about it!

A Wedding

I just had the privilege of attending the wedding of the daughter of my dear friend and writing partner, Ann-Elizabeth. After all the rain we have had, today was picture perfect and to be on the top of their mountain, surrounded by such love and friendship was truly a blessing. The bride wore a yellow strapless gown and her flaming red hair was French braided and surrounded by white flowers. The look of love between the couple truly took my breath away.
