BEA Recap

Book Expo America 2011 was quite a whirlwind! I left our homestead for a few days to fly to NYC and have a couple signings at the event. It was the first time I have ever been to BEA and it was crazy! I was staying right by Times Square and the city was hot… Read more »

Heiße Zitrone

I got hit with either a bad, bad cold or the flu and have been held up on the couch for the last two days. I have a fever and every bone in my body aches. Admittedly, I am not the best patient because I have a hard time sitting still. That said, I am… Read more »

We are moving inside now for the remainder of the… Read more »

We continued our road trip west from New York to Oregon after a long break in Oklahoma. Kansas was an easy day, with flat freeway and a horizon line that seemed to go on forever. When we did briefly stop, we were greeted by some of the nicest people I’ve ever run into on the… Read more »

Road Trip Recap

We started our road trip from New York back to Oregon with a stop to first visit Monticello. After that, we headed south on the beautiful Blue Ridge Parkway. I am admittedly pretty Oregon-centric in my viewpoint. I think Oregon is a beautiful state with diverse terrain and awe-inspiring natural places. However, this road trip… Read more »
