Happy Father's Day to all those Dad's out there! (Especially mine. Jimmy P, who has come in clutch a time or two when I really needed it.) You are the ones in the trenches making a difference in your child's life on a daily basis. And Happy Father's Day to the dads who don't need the DNA designation, but who step up anyway. You are IMPORTANT.

I'm Baaack! And I wanted to share a sneak peek of our adventures in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Our journey is the subject of my next travel memoir. "Treehouses with a Teenager" (release date Jan 2023.) It is the follow up to "Scotland with a Stranger."  

This was one of the tiny treehouses we lived in for a couple days. That view!! It was magnificent!!

P.S. If you've read one of my books, can you help an author on the quest to become a New York Times Bestseller out? Reviews are gold and help me reach more people. Please take a minute and tell me (and other readers) what you thought. You can review on Amazon, Goodreads, Barnes and Noble, KOBO, and Apple Books or at any other bookseller. It's even better if you copy and paste the review to multiple places. More reviews=More visibility. You can write as much or as little as you want and I would be forever in your debt.
