Going North. Way, way North!

I get excited about all my travels, but this one looks to be something really special.

I've teamed up with my good friend and outstanding writer Barbara Fradkin to tour the NWT, Yukon and Alaska from May 29 to June 15th.
As you know, I write the Klondike Gold Rush books. I've been wanting to go north for a long time to talk about them right where some of the events in the books happened. When Barbara published her newest book, The Whisper of Legends, which takes place mostly in Whitehorse and on the Nahanni River in the NWT, we knew we had a great opportunity.

And so we began to plan.

The trip is now a reality.

Our first stop is the Northwords Festival in Yellowknife, at which we are delighted to be two of the invited guest authors.  Then on to Whitehorse, Skagway, Dawson City and points in between.

For the details of dates, and what we will be doing or talking about please go to my ON THE ROAD blog: 

If you happen to be in the north in the beginning of June we would love to see you. We'll talk books and why, as southerners, we were so audacious as to set books in the North.
