Growing up, I moved at the command of father’s military career. While I played with other children, they moved through my life with the frequency of a revolving door. Books, however, were my friends. Anything I possibly wanted to experience waited inside the pages of a book. When I lived in New Jersey for only ten months, I received an award for reading the most books of any student in school – ever!
And, moving meant I experienced all sorts of weather. In Louisiana and Florida, hurricanes came from the Gulf of Mexico. Deep snows in New Jersey and Washington. Tornados in Nebraska and Kansas. Along with typhoons when I lived in Japan.
Closer to home, storms have ravaged the countryside. Devastating tornadoes. Droughts. Wildfires. Floods. And, the year isn’t over yet. Winter will roll in soon. If you’ve been touched by weather this year, you will be able to relate to the stories in Storm Country: The Anthology.
