Did you know? Sunpenny authors come from Italy, Australia, the Netherlands, and many more interesting places. I’m blessed to be one of them through the Sophie Topfeather series!
Val Poore, a Sunpenny author who writes about life on a boat in Europe’s canals (children’s stories and memoirs), is about to launch a new blog series about her fellow authors and how their local environments and communities have helped shape their writing. Seeing that these people come from all over the world, it’s bound to be a very interesting series!
Click on the link at the end to read her introduction to the series, and then look here for the Sunpenny author interviews in the days and weeks to come. I’ll be reposting them on my website. For the first interview, I’m honored to say, she chose me! (For those who subscribe to the Sunpenny blog and my website, my apologies! You’ll be getting it twice).
Read the interview through (when it’s posted in a few days) for a sneak preview of a new book that my husband, Jeff, and I actually researched and wrote together about a very special place here in the great Pacific Northwest! It’s due out in May, and we’ll be releasing the cover and all the details as soon as we can. For those of you who have noticed a distinct lack of blogging from this corner of the web, this new book is a big reason why. It was a lot of work! (But really fun!) Here’s a hint: doing the research involved a lot of trips to Ashford, Washington. Do you know what’s in Ashford?
