In addition to reading books of our own choosing, my husband Jim and I like to read books together out loud. It's a great way to wind down and end the day or pass the time on road trips. Currently we're reading My Life in France by Julia Child with Alex Prud'homme. We loved the movie Julie/Julia, and that got us interested in the book. Now as we near the end of this wonderful book, we've been talking about what we'll read together next. I gave Jim a Kindle for Christmas, which he loves, and we've decided to download the new book by historian Joseph J. Ellis First Family: Abigail and John Adams. We both love history and a good love story, and with this book we'll get both.
I love to play with words. To capture moments on the page. To explore the physical and spiritual geography of what I call "fly-over country." I write from imagination, observation and my own experience of wandering in fly-over country--the literal, physical spaces of my life on the Minnesota prairie and the inner territory of the soul.
