Thank you for reading my book! What year did you live in Ketchikan? I lived just a few minutes from Bugge Beach, practically across the street. It was likely my parents you had dinner with (my grandparents never lived in Ketchikan). My parents lived just up the hill from me. They moved there from the Bear Valley area. It appears we had some similar travels!(less)

I love it when I'm on a creative roll and ideas start popping up in my head. For my memoir, it was fun to look back over my lifespan and see how certain events were hints as to what was to come, and how certain stories created a tie in to stories thirty years later. (less)

I read The Glass Castle a few years ago. I was hooked by the first line and could not put it down. It is a powerful and inspirational story. I highly recommend and I plan to read it again soon, slower this time.
