The golden Salish Sea at Semiahmoo that filled my lens a few summers ago, and this video my sister Kaye caught last night.

Pink’s is for medievalists

March 25, 2017

First I got to talk about This is Not a Werewolf Story with a bunch of people who love medieval literature as much as I do, then I got to go to Pink’s. Best long weekend ever, thanks to the Medieval Association of the Pacific, Loyola Marymount University, and my fellow panelists Jes Battis and Kim Zarins. Who knew there were so many of us writing YA works inspired by our scholarship?

Last Friday I had the chance to go back to Whidbey Island and visit the students at Crescent Harbor Elementary. Like a lot of the students in the library that afternoon, I’m a Navy brat. That means answering the question, “Where are you from?” always takes a beat or two to answer.  

To me, where I’m from is a place I’ve never really lived.

A few months ago I was driving I-5 north of Burlington, heading towards the Canadian border. The highway narrows there, hacked into the hillside, evergreens crowd either side.  Home. The word was there.  This stretch of freeway leads to the little town where I was born and lived for the first few years of my...

A moonbow? Only in a few places in the world.

January 18, 2017

I’ve seen moon halos before, but never a moonbow.   BBC Travel says your best bet is Cumberland Falls in Kentucky, U.S. or Victoria Falls on the Zambia Zimbabwe border. Read more here! And if you’d like to see Ian Glendinning’s amazing recent photo of one, click here

An interview with Author Magazine’s Bill Kenower

December 19, 2016

Bill Kenower interviewed me a few weeks ago when I was at the University Bookstore in Seattle.  I’ve been a fan of his for a long time, so it was kind of intimidating at first.  But he put me at ease pretty quickly. I love how he edited it to focus on my relationship, over the years, with criticism. I hope it encourages anyone out there who wants to be a writer to keep plugging away at it.
