This Winter


Hello friends and writers,

If it seems a bit chilly where you are, moving into the darkest month, curl up with a good book.  Or treat yourself to an afternoon of cozy writing with a cupa.  If you feel the need to get away from the U.S.A. for a brief respite, click on the cruise tab and come away with us to Bermuda and France and Ireland and England next spring, writing all the way.

If you’re in the Portland, Oregon area, join my winter writing class.  (Click on classes)  I promise you will be re-inspired about your work.  And if you’ve taken my class before, you are eligible to take my Master Class.  Ten Monday nights beginning Jan. 30.  You can sign up by emailing me at

Best books I’ve read this year:

The Art of Fielding by Chad Harbach

Fosse by Sam Wasson

All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr

Happy holidays!
