Last weekend I went on a road trip to Marsing with my dad. Dad and I spent a lot of our time together driving in the pickup when I was a little girl, but I didn’t notice Chicken Dinner Road or pay attention to driving through Idaho wine country. I didn’t know the name of Lizard Butte or that there was an Easter service at the top of the butte every year. It was great to spend time with Dad and learn new things about my home state. I am excited about traveling to every county in Idaho this year. The Gem State has so much to offer and I can’t wait to share my journey with you!
The book signing event at the Lizard Butte Library was a great experience. I met a lot of kiddos and got to know my fellow IAC members. I even got my picture taken with Shea McClellin..sort of. https://www.facebook.com/SheaMcClellin
If you are ever in Marsing, Idaho, you have to visit the library, eat lunch at Alejandra’s Mexican Restaurant (they have the best guacamole in the world), check out the giant poster of Shea McClellin, and watch some sprint boat races.
Read today and every day to come because reading is so much fun!
I live in Seattle with my husband, two children, two dogs, and a cat named Ish.
My favorite job (besides being a mama and a children's author) was being a bookmobile librarian!
I am represented by Jordan Hamessley of New Leaf Literary.
