Global travel as a volunteer is the very best way to see the world, to learn about another culture and to strengthen your heart.


Background Information

Exploring the world has become a way for me to explore myself as I see my reflection through different cultures. As I travel and volunteer, the process of writing becomes a way to communicate what I am seeing and feeling. All of my adventures both sad and glad have bubbled up inside of me and I suppose writing them down was inevitable.

The creativity of word expression is like dancing in my mind. It is a moment in time when I slow everything down and find first what it is I am feeling and then see if I can bring that straight to my reader. It is in this calm place, the stillness, that perhaps I have a moment to hear my own soul dancing. I know that my breathing is quite different when I am writing.

As for influences, every one of the wonderful authors who have kept me happy for hours is a motivation to communicate with passion. I've had so many books as best friends for hours as I become  lost in the story. Mark Twain. Amy Tan. hundreds more.   

 

Accomplishments

USA Book News named my book as their Best Books Award Winner in travel.

Additional Information

I've gone to some book clubs lately to talk about my book and hope to do more of that. I'll be speaking at Village Books in Bellingham and the Bainbridge Library in Wa and the Ojai Spa in CA in January 2009. I hope to be doing a book tour in the spring to New England. And I'll be back out of the country in March and April volunteering again. As for writing I am working on a new book now.
