June ended with a bang: a really fun TV interview with Stephanie Larkin, publisher of Red Penguin Books, on Between the Covers TV Show about Holding Fast, my book about the sailing journey I took with my husband and young daughter. Not only were her questions interesting like asking me about my evolution from who I was when I started the book to years later when I finished, but I also enjoyed meeting the other writers whom she interviewed, Amy Bernstein and Shannon Lawrence. We all write in different genres and the conversation was lively. You can see it here. My portion begins around 23:00.
Last week, I had the immense joy of attending my granddaughter's wedding in Cape Elizabeth, Maine. The weather and setting could not have been more exquisite. I remember the days when she tormented her younger brother, and seeing the stunning and amazing young woman she's become was a delight. I hadn't visited the Northeast side of the family since pre-Covid and I'm still savoring how great it was to be together. I also took a little time to explore the coast, like Falmouth Harbor above, and to sample numerous lobster rolls.
Hope you all are enjoying summer.
