I’m greatly honored to be a fellow at Knight Science Journalism for Fall/Winter 2021-2022. I’ll be working on a new book project about an animal very close to my heart.
Whoa, did I read that right!? I guess I did. Baggage has received a GOLD medal from the IBPA Benjamin Awards in the Travel category. I’m super honored and excited.
In May, I gave a zoom reading and Q&A with NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) – Minnesota. It was a great event! You can view it here.
I’m very honored that Baggage got a Silver medal in Memoir & Personal Journey for the Nautilus Book Awards!
This is especially cool because Nautilus focuses on books that “support conscious living & green values, high-level wellness, positive social change & social justice, and spiritual growth.”
Baggage is a finalist for the IBPA Benjamin Franklin Award in the Travel category! Winners will be announced in Mid-may.
