What is it about mountains?

I'm in super-love with my new landscape. After spending most of my life (except for the first 10 years that were in hilly country; foothills of Appalachia) in flat-flat-flat lands, I am back in mountains. I can't get enough of them.

[Place] Thoughts on writing, belonging, and change.

I spent a few days in the big city, promoting My Heart is a Mountain. These are the cities I grew up in. I am quite comfortable there and I appreciate the easiness of everything. Food is a block away. Heat is turned up with a thermostat, instead of waiting for a woodstove to heat [...]

The booth I signed my book in seemed to be working very well. People watching is fascinating! Having authors signing books is a big draw, even if customers [...]
