Today is one of my favorite days of the year. It’s time to announce the annual Tiger Drive Scholarship recipient, which was inspired by my novel, Tiger Drive. This is the eighth year I’ve been able to grant this pay-it-forward scholarship, and I do it with tears of happiness each time.
Since 2014, the trusted Tiger Drive Scholarship Committee has helped select over 15 recipients. And thanks to each person who has purchased one of my novels and the kind and supportive donations from friends and family, more than fifteen young people have taken the first step toward the future of their choosing. To each of you and each young person who dares to reach, learn, and grow beyond their familiar environment, thank you for being you.
Congratulations to this year’s recipient. I wish I could be a fly on the wall when you hear the news …

But when I submitted what I thought would be my final-final-final draft two months ago and waited for their praise, they instead responded along these lines:Continue reading

First things first … no, I’m not getting married. But I have made a potentially life-changing commitment to someone.
After a series of events that I can only call serendipitous, I have a literary agent to find a publishing house and home for my precious third novel, Finding Imogene.Continue reading
What 4 Deaths In 5.5 Months Have Taught Me
In the past five months, I’ve lost four loved ones—people I cared deeply about and who influenced my life in uncountable ways, including my mother who died of COVID-19 on December 7, 2020. Before now, I didn’t know grief could stack up the way it has, and I’m not the only person grieving. Millions of people are aching with me.
As you read my thoughts below, you or someone you know might be in mourning. If so, I’m sorry. This letter is for you and yours.Continue reading
