Event: Book Passage Summer Reading
Left Coast Writers Summer Reading Event
After braving multiple technical issues and banter with the audience, I was finally able to read a four-minute excerpt from my short story, "My Lost Sole," included in my forthcoming collection about my experiences in, on, and around toilets, tubs, and showers encountered on my travels.
Excerpts from that collection are available on the Porcelain Travels podcast.
Coming in August!

Excited to have my Solas Award-winning story "Welcome Back Again" featured as an Editors' Choice on http://travelerstales.com (scroll to bottom of page).
Anyone who has ever dealt with troublesome taxi drivers will appreciate this story, although I pray that few of you have had as much trouble as I did--a true nightmare right out of a movie!
The story is also included in my Amazon best-selling With Open Arms book and audiobook.
Thanks to Travelers' Tales for featuring!
Finally carved out an hour to organize my notes from last month's trip to Central Asia, and remembered this - which I had completely forgotten about. I was going to do a series, but ended up getting caught up in other goings-on while on the road, so the series didn't happen.
In this clip I tell one of my favorite stories from my trip, which recounts the incredible, selfless kindness I was shown by a stranger on my arrival in Bukhara.
The Uzbek people were such warm, welcoming hosts!
As mentioned on last Sunday's show (https://bit.ly/2swLDZf), I had a great time talking with Tom and Mark from the Peanut Butter & Passports podcast! We discussed Morocco, my night in an Arctic chicken coop (included in my forthcoming collection), and writing in general. Our chat will be split into two episodes, out early August. Meanwhile you can check PB&P out here:
Spirit in Spain & the Female Form
Great show last Sunday!
SPIRIT IN SPAIN & THE FEMALE FORM
Award-winning author, filmmaker, and LitWings founder Erin Byrne talked about Lorca’s duende to her own profound spiritual experiences in Spain and France to the film she’s currently producing—and writing and travel and so much more. Erin is the author of “Wings: Gifts of Art, Life, and Travel in France,” and the editor of two “Vignettes & Postcards” anthologies. Her work has won three Grand Prize Solas Awards for Travel Story of the Year, and she was just named Travel Writing curator for The Creative Process Exhibition.
In my second segment, Lone Mørch talked about the hows, whys, and discovery, healing, and transformation that has resulted from her photography, as featured in her beautiful, powerful new book, “Embody: Intimate Photographic Encounters with Women.” Lone has lived and worked in Europe, Asia and the United States. Her essays have been published in Danish, American and Nepalese newspapers, anthologies, and magazines, including InStyle, Cosmopolitan, People, the SF Chronicle, and the Huffington Post.

Matthew Félix has traveled to more than 50 countries and done many short- and long-term stints abroad.
Matthew has lived in European capitals and isolated Spanish villages. He has visited India’s holy sites with a Buddhist monk, slept in a chicken coop in the Arctic, and scaled the sand dunes of the Sahara. He has climbed an active volcano in Chile, been surrounded by gunfire in Istanbul, and traveled the Nile in a sailboat.
Matthew speaks three languages fluently, as well as smatterings of others. When not working on writing projects or on the road, he is likely to be found exploring the streets of San Francisco or hiking the trails of Northern California.
