Rocking Emerald Heights

Emerald Heights readingThe Writer’s Workshop Blog highlights my adventures teaching writing classes, writing stories, articles and books, leading travel, food and wine writing classes to France and Italy, traveling the globe, promoting my books including the novel, The Storms of Denali, and other aspects of the wild and crazy world of writing and publishing. Writing and publishing are changing enormously and I hope this blog will help keep you up to date on some of the changes.

My last reading at Emerald Heights, my parent’s new home, was a smashing success. Over 100 people attended, over 20 people bought copies of The Storms of Denali, and only two people fell asleep! Many thanks to my father for the rousing introduction.

Climbing Mt. Washington during The Storms of Denali Book Tour

Nick and Chris Taking a break from The Storms of Denali book tour, Chris Olsen and I hiked to the top of Mt. Washington, encountering high winds and gray clouds. It was very satisfying to reach the top. Later, I gave a slide show at Joe Dodge Lodge at Pinkham Notch, a wonderful spot for a reading. Thanks again to the Appalachian Mountain Club for the invite!
