People always ask me if I’ve been this seasick. Yes, I have, and I don’t care to discuss it, thank you.

Below is a painting of the boat I spent five years off and on while I was growing up.

About the Dedication

for Kathleen, Susan and Amy
co-writers in residence
and for Nancy, the angel at the gate

The first and best thing my writing ever earned me was a residency at Hedgebrook Farm, a retreat for women writers on Whidbey Island in Washington State and heaven on this earth. There be magick there.

Nancy Skinner Nordhoff is Hedgebrook’s founder, the angel at the gate. Kathleen Alcala, Amy Pence and Susan Simpson Brown were the other writers in residence with me. Kathleen’s son Ben was also there; he was born a month later.
