About this title
Somewhere in an Oregon Valley relates one family’s adventure taking care of a ranch in northeastern Oregon, with no modern conveniences, with home schooling, with detailed observations of their abundant contacts with wildlife. Excerpts from this volume have been published in Bellowing Ark, The Christian Science Monitor, The Doula, Men's Fitness, Northwest, Summit, and The Sun, A Magazine of Ideas.About the Author:
I took care of a hay and cattle ranch in northeastern Oregon, then the water inlets for the city of Bend, Oregon, on Tumalo Mountain, then a Girl Scout ranch in the Rocky Mountains near Denver and then another Girl Scout ranch in the Rocky Mountains near Fort Collins, Colorado. Laura and I and our daughters, Juniper and Amanda, loved living in the mountains. I published many essays about our experiences as a family on remote ranches, close to wildlife, off the grid.
I published essays, fiction, and poetry in The Crab Creek Review, Back Home, Bellowing Ark, Bugle, The Christian Science Monitor, The Doula, The Fiddlehead, Home Educator's Family Times, Home Schooling, Men's Fitness, Northwest, Summit, The Sun, a Magazine of Ideas, Yoga International, The Wolf Head Quarterly, Zyzzyva, and other magazines and newspapers. I've published books of fiction, and books of non fiction.
Many of my essays and some of my books are about wildlife we saw and interacted with, about our close family ties that came from living and working in undeveloped areas, about the education of our daughters within our family, about the perspectives we developed because we lived close to the land, with nature and wildlife around us.
I created songs through all our experiences. Recently, I started learning guitar, singing, and all the technical procedures needed to perform and record my songs and make them available to interested listeners. I write essays, poems, stories, and books. I keep my website (Oregonauthor.com) up to date to make my work available and to sell some of it.
I enjoy sunshine, rain, snow and fog. I watch birds who come to my backyard to eat the seeds I've scattered. I watch geese, ducks, eagles osprey, great blue herons, swallows, and other animals who come to the pond in front of our house.
