Guest Blogger - Are We Walking To Alaska

Franni has asked to be a guest blogger and tell you about my book.

When I was six our family moved from California to Southeast Alaska (the part that runs down beside part of British Columbia).

It was a huge change for our whole family and this book is the true story of our first years in Alaska - in the 1950s - before Alaska was a state. The book is "Are We Walking To Alaska" - it is family friendly and enjoyed by all ages.  So without further delay - here is the post I wrote on my blog.  Thank you for taking the time to read it.

Hey - I'm not a bookmark!

One stop shopping - and if you have Amazon Prime you can have the print books shipped right to each person - or if you order Kindle it will be delivered to their Kindle for instant reading.

If you'd like an autographed copy, there is still time - leave  a message and a way to contact you, or email me at and we'll work out the details.  I'm always happy to autograph a book.  The autographed books have to come from me, as none at amazon are autographed - I have a good supply handy this holiday season.  If you want it autographed and sent as a gift I'll even include gift wrapping free.

Thanks for shopping - and thanks for stopping by - and thanks to Franni, for inviting me to be a guest blogger so I could meet her wonderful friends.
