This whirlwind book launch tour is winding down, with two more events and a few days of R & R on the Oregon coast before heading home. What a learning and stretching experience it has been, so full of wonderful people and places!


Thanksgiving dinner in October with my wonderful western family!


A great reunion with my sister,


and meeting the newest member of the family, my great great niece!


We stopped at one of my favorite childhood places, Lake O’ the Woods, on the way to my hometown, Klamath Falls. Oregon is experiencing drought which is evident in this picture.  My husband is standing where the water should be.


First morning out we had a rainbow out our motel window.  Can  you think of a better way to start?


Speaking to a Psychology 201 class in a large lecture hall was one of those “growing and stretching” moments, but I did it with God’s help!


Meeting so many lovely people at every stop along the way,




watching the dialogue take off,


and visiting lifelong friends!

Thanks to ALL my friends and family who have followed me and supported me along the way!  Looking forward to the Charlotte launch on Nov. 8 at Park Road Books at 2:00!


Congratulations to Glenda Blaisdell-Buck, winner of last week’s drawing for Phillip Shabazz’s wonderful book in verse, When the Grass Was Blue.

  2. I so happy for you and so proud of your wonderful accomplishment. The trip looks amazing and so does that delicious food set on the table. Safe travels home.

    • Thanks for your wonderful support, Laurie! I’m feeling truly blessed by how well this is all going. Hearing story after story of people who have been affected by mental illness. I feel like the book is opening dialogues, just as I had hoped and prayed.

  3. I am so happy you had a wonderful family reunion and a successful book launch! I am looking forward to seeing you next weekend!
