other authors

In case you didn’t know, I’m a giant. Don’t believe me? Check out how tall I am compared to these other very talented writers and artists! (Y’know, the shrimps?) Oh, and this is at Portland’s coolest bookstore, A Children’s Place.

The Community Partners for Affordable Housing invited me to its fundraiser. Everyone was super-nice, like these people! But I can’t remember what I was saying here. Maybe something like: “So I said, ‘What do you MEAN this isn’t spaghetti?'”

2016: Wild Arts Festival

 

There are outrageous rumors that I wrote a novel about a birdwatcher (you know, The Drake Equation) just so I’d have a great book at the Audubon Society’s show. And I just want to say that those rumors are actually TRUE!

I talked about reading, writing, and my new novel, The Drake Equation, at Portland’s book festival, Wordstock.

October, 2016: Oregon Reads Aloud!

ora

I got to be part of the coolest event imaginable! It was the SMART kickoff for the children’s book: Oregon Reads Aloud.

The book features 25 illustrated stories—one for each year SMART’s been around. Creative geniuses like Carmen Bernier-Grand, Gina Ochsner, Eric Kimmel, Barbara Kerley, Robin Kerr, Dale Basye —and even Bart King!— contributed their talents. Here’s a video, and below are two photos from our book event!
