After running a 5K race in

5/12/09 — After running a 5K race in Portland on Saturday with my daughter, Kelsey, she and Debbie and Amy and I went to Fed Ex to ship the print-out of STORM MOUNTAIN to New York. I also emailed an electronic copy. So, for now anyway, the story is back in my editor’s hands. It’ll rebound my way again, though, I’m sure, with more suggestions for improvement. Which I look forward to. The first round was super helpful. I expect the second to take it to the next level.

Kids in schools here in Indiana, where I’m currently doing author visits, have been asking when STORM MOUNTAIN will be published. I don’t know the answer right now, but will spill the news as soon as I find out.
