#1 Favorite Thing- Be Outside!
Sunbeams, the scent of fresh-cut grass ... and adventure outdoors are a few of my favorite things! The illustration above and the story passage below is based on true-life happenings with my sons, turned into my second book based in Bismarck, North Dakota. This excerpt is told from Adam, my youngest son's point of view, and it sums up another one of my favorite things ... memories!

“Do you fish, Adam?” Zach asks me as the boat speeds across the mighty Missouri River which is wider than a football field.

There are a number of smart ways I could answer the question … but, they’re not for me.  Not Adam Moynihan.  I choose the absolute worst answer.  “I can catch anything,” I blurt out, even though I’ve only used worms for bait and a marble-size bobber to catch small pan-size fish, like blue gill.  My bold bragging might just get me in trouble fishing for sturgeon that I've been told are bigger than my arms spread wide. - Trouble Out West.

Adventures can be big or small. I'm working on my next teen fiction ... do you have any stories to share?
