Background Information

As the author of South to Alaska, a travel memoir about my father who constructs a 47-foot boat in our backyard and cruises it from Arkansas to Alaska by way of the Panama Canal, I took my first writing class solely with the intention of writing my fatherís story.  That first class led to four years of writing classes and independent study, culminating in a Bachelor of Arts Degree from Vermont College of Norwich University where I studied creative writing. 


I not only watched my fatherís dream weave its way through the lives of my family, but I also boarded the Red Dog for the first leg of its journey along the Arkansas and Mississippi Rivers.  I moved to Alaska the year following my parentsí arrival there in 1973, where I lived for 25 years before relocating to northern Idaho in 1999.


In addition to the publication of South to Alaska by New Leaf Books, I have had poetry and nonfiction published in We Alaskans, Decision Magazine, and in literary journals such as The Ledge, The MacGuffin, Snowy Egret, and The Lyric.  A German magazine, Entscheidung, reprinted the Decision Magazine article.


I am the 2008 First Vice-President of the Coeur díAlene chapter of the Idaho Writers League, and a member of the Pacific Northwest Writers Association.
