DOWNWIND featured on Newberry Honor-winning author Kirby Larson's blog today!

I had the pleasure of reading with Kirby Larson while we were both serving as guest faculty for the Whidbey Writers MFA program this past January.  She's an accomplished author, recipient of numerous awards for childrens' literature, and a really lovely human being besides. She invited me to share a bit about how Downwind came to be in a guest post on her blog's Friday Friends feature, which has hosted some splendid writers in the past. Check it out here.
