Friends, pie, drawbridges, books and one happy author

This weekend I celebrated the release of my debut novel THE WAY BACK FROM BROKEN at two amazing bookstores: Secret Garden Books in Seattle and A Children’s Place in Portland. It was surreal, humbling, exhilarating, exhausting, and wonderful. It is also a story best told in pictures.

  1. Best. Pie. Ever. So fun to be along for the ride, Amber. You ROCKED your book launches like the Pointer Sisters rock an early 80s dance party (and bath tub). And mum’s the word on the Heathens. But THEY WILL RISE AGAIN.
