Hi, and welcome to my “room”! That’s how I feel about this blog : like it’s my classroom you just walked into. Maybe someone directed you here, maybe you just wandered in, but here you are and here I am, and we get to spend as much time as you want discussing whatever we want. And there isn’t even any homework!
Wing’s World is where I go to talk about whatever’s on my mind, so I don’t drive my husband crazy by blurting out stuff like, “Hey, why ISN’T ‘indifferent’ the opposite of ‘different’?” I’m also happy to talk about my YA novels, The Flying Burgowski and Headwinds (and Book 3, Altitude, currently under construction).
Alhough I’m an author now, you’ve probably figured out that I used to be a teacher. I guess I still am; it’s a permanent condition, like having stubby toes. But I’m okay with it. I’m not teaching right now; I’m spending my time writing books and working part-time in a WONDERFUL bakery, Holly B’s on Lopez Island. If you come here, you must stop by, because “Holly’s Buns Are Best.” I also do a lot of moving: I run and hike and ride my bike all over the island, and my Happy Place is anywhere up on a mountain or down in a canyon. But curled up cozy with a book–that’s nice too.
Oh, and I’m a singer-songwriter now too. Who knew how much time not-teaching would give me? (Shout-out to my former colleagues and all current teachers: you guys rock. I know how hard it is; may you feel the love.)
ANYway…now, when I miss my classroom and my students and colleagues, I go here–back to Wing’s World. Thanks for joining me.
