Powell’s Was A Blast

The bookstore rep said the turnout was twice normal, they sold every copy of Day Trips From Portland they had in the store, and they invited me back for my next book, Chance of Sun, to publish Aug. 1.

Even better were the long-lost family members and friends who showed up!

I think I might like this book touring stuff…

My Winning Essay Out in Oregon Quarterly Magazine

The Summer Issue of Oregon Quarterly Magazine, now available in print and online, features my essay, “The Friday’s Trilogy,” which won the Northwest Perspectives Essay Contest this year.

The essay is also a chapter in my upcoming book, Chance of Sun: An Oregon Memoir.

A girl comes of age in Oregon in the 1970s and 80s, navigating her way through the perils of sex, drugs and camping before finding a place she belongs. To be published by Nestucca Spit Press in August of 2011.

Thanks again to Guy Maynard, Debra Gwartney, and the staff of Oregon Quarterly for providing me with the thrill of the year, as well as a delightful celebratory event in Eugene last month.
