Every year, when the temperatures in Phoenix begin to inch over the 100 degree mark, my husband and I flee to Northern Arizona. In mid-May we take our tribe of dogs, cats, plants, and sometimes our son, and move into our cabin in Munds Park, a tiny alpine town thirty minutes south of Flagstaff. The 6800' altitude keeps the thermometer at 80 to 90-degrees max--low enough to hike the national forest in our backyard every morning, and sleep with the windows open at night when it cools down.
Unfortunately, I won't get much cabin time this summer.
First up is Phoenix ComiCon, May 25-28. I'll be there every day in the Wikked Writers booths (we have AA 1300-1330). Arizona friends, the lineup this year is spectacular. I'm going to find a way to sneak out to see Jim Butcher, Sherrilyn Kenyon, and Terry Brooks, and maybe play a little Quidditch.
Author Jim Butcher writes the Dresden Files series with "Wizard For Hire" Harry Dresden. Must reads for all paranormal and fantasy fans!
So, it looks like my time at the cabin will consist of three weeks in June, then home to the Valley of the Sun to figure out how to pack for a 15-day tour where we stay in a different place every other day. If you've done such a vacation tour...HELP!
