June Events

I’m hitting the road in June with bookstore events and Turn of the Tide treasure hunts and summer reading kickoffs.HiRes Cover TIDE

JUNE 4th I’ll be at Aunties Bookstore in Spokane, Washington. The fun starts at 10:30. There will be treats and prizes for the first ten finishers of the treasure hunt.


JUNE 5th I’ll be at Rediscovered Books in Boise, Idaho. Come by the shop at noon and sign up for summer reading along with our treasure hunt.

And then I’m so honored to be on the faculty at the Conference on Literature and Hawaii’s Children in Honolulu from JUNE 9th to 11th I’ll be getting together with my good friend and fellow author Nancy Bo Flood to do a workshop on biracial and multi-ethnic characters in literature. Very much looking forward to spending time with writer friends Sue Cowing and Graham Salisbury.

A Book event with The Captain!

I was so honored to be joined by Captain Deborah Dempsey who was a chief inspiration for this book and also Julie McLaughlin who did the wonderful cover art. Captain Dempsey is from Bellingham and Julie is from Vancouver BC. We are joined in the picture by avid reader Annabelle.
