  As I mentioned previously about attending the AWP writers conference in Denver, the mile-high city is dry. Chapstick is as important as water. While at times I felt like a potato slice on the Lay's potato chip production belt, my companions and I kept plenty busy during the conference--as much...

Yesterday I took my first long walk in the neighborhood. The sun was warm and full in the clear heartbreakingly blue sky. The air was warm and breezes played among the leaves, chasing the squirrels through the trees and dancing with the birds in the sky. I was headed to the post office and there...

The adjustment continues. As we crossed the border into Colorado last week, I had one of those chest-tightening moments and a feeling of "this is real". The mountains are gorgeous, and although I can't predict how I'll react to a lengthy winter season, right now the climate is totally...

Does it not boggle your mind to consider that--by plane--in two hours one can be in Colorado?  The very name of the state--Colorado--reminds me of women in big floppy cotton bonnets, their faces (the women, not the bonnets) chapped from the sun anyway, trying to make do while crossing the ghastly...

I have a friend--I'll call her Jennie--who was diagnosed eight months ago with breast cancer. I learned this very recently. Jennie and I are friends whose worlds overlap only along a very particular seam: we meet and see each other thanks to our dogs, who compete in canine agility. In the sport of...

I have an interview on BlogTalkRadio on Saturday, September 5 at 11:30am ET. We’re going to be talking about back story -- where I got the ideas for A Spark of Heavenly Fire and More Deaths Than One. Although one of the hosts of the show has read at least one of my books, I’m sure at some point he...

Sandy breeds and raises Golden Retrievers in Grand Junction, Colorado. I met her at the small airport there, while we were both sitting at the gate waiting for a flight. While sorting through her wallet next to me she happened to pull out one of her business cards, and as soon as I saw the embossed...

My family apparently decided an intervention was necessary. I think it all started when I told my husband I was chomping down radishes like they were going out of style and chocolate was next...Anyway, I've been kidnapped - in a nice way - and made to live in the real world this week. And what a...

Loneliness took me on many journeys. Thoreau wrote: "Men go fishing all of their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after." So in the middle of December, after I finished my classes and quit my job, I drove to Colorado with a man I had only known for two weeks and married...
