The Tale of Willaby Creek Season's Greetings!

Amidst the hubbub of the holidays I hope you're enjoying the sights and sounds of this special time of year.

Several months ago I mentioned my plans to include a contest in my newsletter; well, I finally got my act together with the help of SCBWI!

Click here to view a book launch party for my children's novel, The Tale of Willaby Creek—it's hosted by the Society of Children's Book Writers & Illustrators. Merely sign the guest book on the sidebar and you're eligible to be one of four winners when they're announced on April 1, 2016! While the book is being promoted for children, I've had several adults purchase a copy for themselves or, more recently, as gifts, so take a look!

It's been a busy time for me the last few months; below are a few of the highlights of my storyteller's journey:

In late September we traveled to Pt. Townsend, WA to visit some special relatives. We had a wonderful time in the quaint city that sits on the shore of Puget Sound.

The Fort Vancouver Regional Library has been a great supporter of mine. Below are two of its fall events I participated in:

Book Blast Authors & Illustrators Dinner
They invited me to have a book signing at the FVRL Book Blast At the FVRL Authors & Illustrators Dinner w/my donation

In November we traveled to Astoria, Oregon for another book signing—we love that historic coastal town!

Below are photos of two of my fall books signings:

FinnWare Vintage Books
At FinnWare in Astoria, OR. It's an extraordinary shop of Scandinavian items. At Vintage Books in Vancouver, WA "Faeries, Elves, & Angels"—A joint event with author friend, Kriston Johnson.

The first weekend of December we participated in ScanFair in Portland, Oregon. It's become an annual event for us and, since we're both a bit Scandinavian, the festival has reconnected each of us to our Nordic roots. We had an awesome time this year!

Wishing you joy, peace, and love this holiday season. Best wishes for a happy and healthy New Year!
