We had a fabulous time at Women Writing the West in Santa Fe. About 170 authors attended. I had a great time presenting a workshop with authors Dawn Wink & C.M. Mayo who came from Mexico City. Our workshop was on writing across borders and cultures.
I just finished a remarkable book tour in the Pacific Northwest: Portland and Bend, Oregon, and Seattle and Bellingham, Washington.
I presented "The Haunting of the Mexican Border" at 5 venues:
1. Ascension Catholic Church for two amazing and moving events
2. Women, Wine, and Books book club event in Bend, Oregon.
3. Central Oregon Community College, Bend, Oregon
4. Ravenna Third Place Books, Seattle, Washington
5. Village Books, Bellingham, Washington
The Haunting of the Mexican Border is Shortlisted for the Sarton Women's Literary Award 2015.
They grant an annual award to women authors published in the United States and Canada.
