Coming soon!

I needed to get away to figure out what was next for me. This is what happened when I did. These are travel anecdotes, stories, and ruminations from my month in a small island village in Croatia.

Great Litquake in the Redwoods!

A brief video montage of last Saturday's literary celebration in the redwoods, part of Litquake's 20th anniversary festivities.

Hosted by Naomi Goldner and Tom Phillips of WordSpaceStudios Literary Arts and emceed by yours truly, the event featured music, paella, and writers, including the following (in order of appearance): Susan Swartz, Barbara L. Baer, Eanlai Cronin, Conrad Bishop, Elizabeth Fuller, Maureen Simons, Jodi Hottel, Amy G. Latham, Larry Robinson, Martha Grover, Nona Caspers, Maya Khosla, and Jessi Phillips. A special shout-out to authors Erin Byrne and Lone Mørch who were unable to make it and were missed!

Many thanks to Jan Hammock and Enulla Shamir for behind-the-scenes help, as well as huge thanks to Brian Cullen for two days spent preparing the property for the event.

Lastly, apologies for the grainy quality of the video later in the evening; time for a camera upgrade!

Thank you for a wonderful event!
