Chelan Writing Retreat: The Barrel Feast

It was a gorgeous weekend. The sun was out, the sky was clear and the snow capped mountains were a gleaming backdrop. The best part was that we were viewing all this splendor from the car as we drove out of Seattle and made our way to Chelan for a quick writing retreat. The kids […]

In my biography queue are “Lincoln” and “Benjamin Franklin”. What are some biographies you’ve read that have moved you or that are on your […]
