Idaho Magazine Features Article

The holidays are keeping me hopping. Not much time for writing, or even thinking about it. But earlier this fall, I wrote an article about my hometown for IDAHO Magazine's monthly Spotlight City. It appears in their December issue. You might want to check it out at www.idahomagazine.com

Merry Christmas to All!

Judging the WILLA

I'm excited to have been asked to be a judge for the 2008 WILLA Literary Awards. The WILLA, named in honor of author Willa Cather, is a nationally recognized annual award given to writers for books set in the American West with a woman/girl as the main character. Women Writing the West, a non-profit association of writers, underwrites and presents the award. The categories are contemporary fiction, historical fiction, original softcover fiction, creative nonfiction, scholarly nonfiction, poetry, and children's/young adult fiction and nonfiction. I'll be judging the original softcover category. Can't wait.
