The local newspaper, The Statesman Journal, ran an article on three of the local finalists for the Oregon Book Awards. If you’ve ever wondered what I look like in my home office, well, there you go. I know, I know, try to contain your excitement. A picture of me typing would have been even more riveting. Though I have to say, usually I’m not quite that smiley. I just smiled because the photographer promised me a cookie.
And I have to add that the picture was taken back in August when the newspaper ran a feature on me and The Last Great Getaway of the Water Balloon Boys, just in case you were getting the impression that I’m some sort of attention-starved, publicity-seeking, reality star wannabe. Really, I’m not. I promise.
