I am always delighted and honored when a book club selects one of my books for reading and dicussion. Your questions answered.
Where can I find a copy of Miraculous Air?
All major on-line booksellers carry it and it's now available in Kindle. (Librarians: it is also available from Ingram.)
Is this book available in Spanish?
It will be soon.
Where can I find this book and your other books?
Do you have any advice for travel writers?
On occasion I teach a workshop on literary travel writing. You can view my workshop schedule and also find oodles of resources for writers on my workshop page.
Any advice about current conditions for traveling in Mexico and in Baja California?
These days I am mainly focussed on my current work-in-progress, about Far West Texas, so, alas, I am not the best person to ask. In any event, my works are of literary narrative; they do not pretend to supply the sort of information one can find in a guidebook or on websites such as Tripadvisor. That said, I do hope that my book may enrich your travels. P.S. Read my blog post on tips for summer day hiking in the desert.
