Join Me Today at Alpental Ski Area

Standard

I will be signing and selling books today at Alpental. With snow in the forecast, it will be a great day to hit the slopes and meet me for some aprés ski action at 2pm in the Denny Mountain Lodge. So if you happen to be at the Summit today, please stop by my table and talk to me. Because there’s nothing sadder than an eager looking writer alone at a table with a pile a books.

My memoir, THE NEXT 15 MINUTES: Strength from the top of the Mountain takes readers on a wild ride of salvation, finding answers to a scary diagnosis on the ski slopes. As a ski patroller, I use explosives to prevent avalanches and my EMT training to save lives. When my husband got sick, it was the most important job yet: rescue him. My training taught me how to survive any crisis, even a terrible diagnosis: just calm down and breathe. During the twelve months waiting for the liver transplant that would save him, I conquered my greatest fear by returning to the mountains. I mined our lives spent skiing, climbing, and exploring the wilderness for lessons I could apply to our current dilemma. THE NEXT FIFTEEN MINUTES offers a rare glimpse into the strange and fascinating world of ski area work, where steep terrain and deep snow, the twin fuels that run our business, can teach us how to get through the worst trials just fifteen minutes at a time.

Check out the Summit Website page for more information. Hope to see you there!

  1. Hope your book selling is going well–do you have a feel for how many have sold so far? On the subject of snow, I was looking at the weather discussion for Whitefish Mountian in Montana and they are calling for 4 to 8 feet of new snow this week–might be a good place to sign books!

    • Thanks for asking. I’ve been getting great feedback on the book, but it’s hard to know how many have sold. I’m pretty sure I must be close to getting on the New York Times Bestseller list any day now. Ha!

      Watch out Montana. Here I come!

You people are amazing. Thanks for commenting.
