Winter Quarter 2015 began with ESL students from twelve different countries in my first class and two scheduled readings.
Many thanks to Rebecca Crichton of the Northwest Center for Creative Aging for inviting me to share my work at Horizon House and to the lovely audience of readers! A special shout out to the wonderful gentleman who pushed a podium my direction so I didn't have to juggle the mic and a book at the same time!
I also want to thank Peggy Sturdivant for the opportunity to participate in It'sAbout Time Writers Reading Series at the Ballard library. It was a pleasure to share the podium with K. Michael Overa as well as the Hugo House guys, Robert P. Kaye and Ian Denning.
A great way to start a new year!
