Following strong women through history

Shifting Winds Recommended

I’m excited to announce that my new book, The Shifting Winds, has been recommended by the Oregon Quarterly, the University of Oregon alumni magazine. I just opened my Autumn 2016 edition and here it is in their “Bookmarks” section of new books by U of O alumni authors.

oregon-quarterly-bookmarksoregon-quarterly-autumn-2016What a delightful surprise! Here’s the magazine cover, at right.

My first book, A Place of Her Own, received the same recognition after its publication in 2014. I told about that in a post back then.

But you never know.

The Oregon Stater alum magazine recognized A Place of Her Own too, shown in another post. I got a master’s degree in journalism from the U of O and a bachelor’s from Oregon State, making me a platypus, I guess, a cross between a duck and a beaver.

I need to keep an eye on these magazines. I’m so glad they appreciate the work.



  1. Huzzah! Huzzah! It is always extra satisfying to be recognized by one’s alma mater.

    • Ah yes! Thanks for that thought, Jaina.

    Good for you Janet!

    • Thank you, Dianne.
