So, in addition to the day job in Marketing, here’s what I’ve been up to this summer:
Per our Father’s Day tradition, we camped in Northern California with friends and kayaked on the Lower Klamath River.
I did 9 Book events, from the San Francisco Bay Area to Bellingham, Washington, and many stops in between. It was quite a trip to see my face at the top of the escalator in the Seattle Barnes & Noble!
I spent some time in exile at Mom’s cabin working on revisions for Book 2. Snapped this shot from the pool deck after a mind-clearing swim.
Went on a Moms + Kids camping trip (which Scott generously set up for us) for Juliet’s birthday, in a spectacular spot on the Upper Rogue River. Best! Swimming holes! Ever!
Celebrated writing group member Jennie Englund’s big agent news – she is now a client of Holly Root! Her YA book is on submission with a big NYC publisher at this very moment.
Enjoyed a long weekend with college friends at Toni’s beach house on Camano Island, and had the best shrimp boil in the world.
Took kids on mini-adventures, like this one with writing group pals and children to one of my favorite childhood swimming spots on the Applegate River.
We acquired a face-eating, needle-toed kitten, who looks like an angel when she sleeps.
And, alas, I turned 44. Love that number!
