So, wait, you’re a travel writer?

Well, kind of. I mean, I travel a lot and I write about it, but I don’t know if my blog is actually useful for-

That sounds amazing.

Yeah, it’s pretty fun … Honestly, sometimes I think it’s wasted on me. I get motion sickness and I’m sort of a homebody so-

You must have the most glamorous life.

Huh?

You TRAVEL THE WORLD and then you write about it. That sounds like a dream.

Um … yes.

So what do you do on your trips? Do you spend every day taking photos and exploring?

Sure.

Where have you been recently?

Let’s see … a few months ago we were in Scotland.

Ooooh, what was it like?

Um … very relaxing.

That is amazing. I hope you appreciate it.

Yes. Appreciate.

And never take a single moment of it for granted. 

Nope. ENJOY EVERY MOMENT! EVERY SINGLE ONE!

Why are you screaming?

Just … making a point about how much I don’t squander my life and how it totally isn’t wasted on an ingrate like me.

Ooookay … Hey, do you have any tips on how to beat jet lag?

Nope.

  • Write what you know, you know?
  • Works in progress and finished.
  • Been overloading on news, so breakfast reading has become graphic novels lately. Highly recommended.
  • No spoilers, but if anyone wants to talk about the new issue of Saga, I'm having every emotion at once right now.
  • Gorgeous day, and no need for a filter on a sky this blue. Really grateful for a bit of sun before the rain returns.
  • "I'm sure this will end well," said no one.
  • Shake it like an artisinal gelatin dessert.
  • Me: "I should go to bed." Also me: "I'm going to try to dress up as Ruth Bader Ginsburg with just stuff I have in my office."
  • Why does he do this to me?
  • I've been heads down in research for my new book, and it's been ... well, slow going to say the least. I'm reminded that unlike so many of my friends (and my dear husband), I do not write books quickly. It took me years to write All Over The Place. And then it was out and it felt like all the excitement was over in a flash, and life went on. Recently, I found out that it was shortlisted for the Washington State Book Awards. It's a nice little reminder that the work we put out into the world - the stuff that sometimes takes years to create - doesn't vanish as quickly as we think it does. ❤️

All Over The Place

Buy my book and I promise I'll never ask you for anything again.

BE AWESOME. BUY IT.
