Grand Traverse

I had such a fabulous time at my book launch in Williamston on the 17th due to all my friends and family.  I don’t have the pictures yet so will do a separate posting on this upcoming.  But I’m packing up to go to Traverse City tomorrow.  I have an interview with TCM Radio on Friday a.m. before heading to Dog Ear Books at Northport, one of my favorite bookstores ever, and then on Saturday to Horizon Books in Traverse City where my buddy Jack Driscoll will be introducing me.  There was a mix up since he was supposed to be reading with me, but it is what it is.  It is always a treat to see Jack, though, so if anyone is in the area, stop by!

It’s hot here and things feel off kilter.  Something got into my hummingbird feeder and I’ve heard something big hanging at the perimeter, that feeling you’re being watched.  And something must be dead nearby since the buzzards and ravens and eagles are all circling, the beetles chirping.  So many bees (this is a good thing) buzzing there is a persistent hum when you open the door.  Still, off kilter or not, I am always upset having to leave my camp here, even for a few short days.

More on the launch and general events next week, but a heartfelt thank you to Wayne State and all my buddies who made my celebration such a blast!  Love you all.

Disclaimer: Will no doubt revise this almost immediately but for now: I am a mother, wife, daughter, friend, fisherman and writer. (My second novel was released by Wayne State University, spring 2016. I write creative nonfiction -- one received an Honorable Pushcart mention -- but mostly short stories. I am also a class-less (without classes, not without manners, though some might disagree) Assistant Contingent Professor at Northern Michigan University which gives me, you guessed it, more time to mother, daughter, wife, fish, write, etc. (I have recently become "classy" once more having taught Fall 2016 and will be teaching two classes Winter 2017). I live off the grid with my son Josh who has Down Syndrome, various floating family members, and my English shepherd dog Maggie, who loves to herd children, birds, and bunnies. I'm working now on a wood fire memoir titled Woodfire Diaries: Cooking and Writing on the Little Two Hearted River.
