Welcome to Story & History: One writer’s journey through life and time. The posts on this blog are about family, history, and writing . . . or about whatever else I encounter in life. The journey isn’t always what we expect.
In the years I have been blogging thus far, I have dealt with my mother’s Alzheimer’s and death, my father’s sudden death just a few months later, my children’s launch into adulthood (though they managed that themselves; I just watched), and accomplishing my dream of publishing Lead Me Home, a novel about travel along the Oregon Trail. I have written about all these topics, as well as about growing up in Washington State, my family’s history through the generations, blogging, and writing.
I have been (and sometimes still am) an attorney, a mediator, and a Human Resources executive and consultant. These experiences also creep into my posts, when my story requires them.
And because my novels are about the settling of the American West, I also post about the Oregon Trail, the California Gold Rush, and related historical topics.
I typically post every Monday and Wednesday.
Please join me on my journey through life and time, and post comments to tell me about your own journey. You can subscribe to the blog directly (via email or through WordPress) or follow me on my Facebook Author Page.
I also take on editing and freelance writing assignments. If you are interested, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your interest in this blog. I hope you enjoy it.
