When not hunched over my keyboard I’m doing research for my other vocation as a vintner. This requires visiting as many of the 22 wineries in the Umpqua Valley as I can. My motto: Never spit!
This beautiful part of the country has the distinct advantage of being above water, as opposed to my home state of Colorado.
Last summer when I was in Maine my state caught fire. Good thing I don’t travel more often.
Making good progress on my book; sent the first half to some early readers. If they don’t like it I can always switch from writing to wining.
