Last Saturday I celebrated the one year anniversary of my first book, Mama’s Purse, at the one year anniversary of the Idaho Authors’ Community. We had a canned food drive and a drawing for autographed copies of IAC books.

It has been incredible to watch the IAC grow. I am thankful for all that I have learned and I take pride in being able to help new members. I look forward to another year of writing, traveling around Idaho, and meeting new faces.

Read today and every day to come because reading is so much fun!

Best wishes,

AJ

Letter from AJ

I had a fantastic time at Frontier Days in Idaho City. I met a lot of friendly folks, talked about books, and enjoyed fresh squeezed lemonade. It was a very hot day, but that didn’t stop people from dressing up and participating in the festivities.
IMAG4288IMAG4299-1Frontier Days included a lot of fun activities for children such as making butter and watching chicken poop bingo! My son enjoyed the scavenger hunt. He learned fun facts about the historic buildings in Idaho City and seemed especially interested in the local newspaper building. He loved looking at the old cannons and pretending that he was sheriff for the day.

I went to Idaho City when I was a little girl, but I forgot how much fun it was. Being a member of the Idaho Authors’ Community has been a wonderful experience so far. I look forward to traveling more of my home state and connecting even more to my roots.

Read today and every day to come because reading is so much fun!
