My Book Gig Weekend in Photos

Gig 1. Thanks, Grass Roots! I dug that.




Quarterly meeting of Nestucca Spit Press. Did I mention the stars?







Spontaneous and uncontrollable desire to run free on the Oregon beach + persistent impression that I am invincible + plenty ‘o vodka + the dark of night + giant rock = OUCH.








Recovery. Thanks, Nana’s. Love you.







Dressed for your book gig already but want to walk the beach? No problem. Sneakers and socks over tights and skirt = unadulterated sex appeal.








Nye Beach. Always. Makes. Me. Happy.










Book Gig 2. Thanks, Linn Benton! You are fabulous. Let’s be friends forever.










My favorite gnarly Oregon mountain pass + snow + dark + vintage Counting Crows & Nine Inch Nails = Awesomeness.

















I love my job.

‘Chance of Sun’ Tour Dates Saturday and Monday


Looking forward to taking “Chance of Sun: An Oregon Memoir” and “Day Trips From Portland: Getaway Ides for the Local Traveler” to the Willamette Valley this weekend.

I’ll be at Grass Roots Books in Corvallis this Saturday the 11th at 2 p.m.

And at Linn Benton Community College for the Valley  Writers Series Valley Writers 2012 Monday the 13th at 3:30 p.m.

In between, I’m going to grab myself a little Oregon coast visit. I’m more than ready for a little time near the February ocean…


Rock and Roll, Babies – It’s Friday Night!
