Two authors: Virginia "Cinnabar" Wright and me, holding the newly-released book
This just in from the NW Tea Fest! The book A Tea Reader: Living Life One Cup at a Time is out! The official release date is Oct 10, so I just about jumped to the roof when I saw a copy at the Phoenix Tea booth here at the NW Tea Fest! I am so honored to have a story in this collection. The compiler and editor is Katrina Avila Munichiello, and my heartfelt thanks to her for seeing this project through.
I cannot overlook the irony of the story I submitted. It was about leaving my beloved friends in New Mexico in 2004, and my struggles to find deep connections with other women in my new home town. And here I am, living that again today. And as before, it is tea and writing that have brought me to deep connections with amazing women in my new hometown.
