Greetings everyone! My first book, A Wallowa Gal, is published. It's on Amazon and will soon be available at local booksellers. It's a collection of my newspaper columns carried in the Chieftain newspaper of Wallowa County.
I haven't posted for six months because I've been on a writing retreat to get this book published. I give authors Mary Emerick and Pam Royes credit for inspiring me to be intentional about time, space and effort to complete a work for publication. My friend Linda Bauck's expertise on book layout was invaluable.
I set aside time and space to do just that, and now my book is out! I'm so excited I can hardly breathe!
I hope readers enjoy my stories about living in Wallowa County, one of Oregon's 7 Wonders!
Here's one review:
A Wallowa Gal is an interesting look at a woman's reinvention of herself at midlife. As she moves to a new and very different life in a remote area of Oregon, Katherine turns her keenly observant eye inward. At times amusing but also insightful, this collection of her columns makes for a great read.
