My book “Day Trips From Portland, Oregon: Getaway Ideas for the Local Traveler” is still on the nonfiction bestsellers shelf at Powell’s in downtown Portland, Oregon!

Even better news came in last week. I’ve signed the contract to write the updated revision, second edition “Day Trips From Portland”, to be released next spring.

Hooray! Oregon road trip here I come.

Stay tuned for more details.

PS This book is a great Christmas gift for the Oregon lover you know, if I do say so myself.

What Happens in Hawaii Stays in Hawaii

That’s the first paragraph of my essay “What Happens in Hawaii Stays in Hawaii,” which is on Brain, Child Magazine.

I wrote it a couple of years ago, so fun to see it see the light! And a great reminder that my chickens are not only awesome humans but the source of really great material. You can’t make this stuff up! Thanks, babies. Keep it up.
