I am thrilled to share my big news – Aunt Phil wins international awards, two huge awards from the 2016 Literary Classics international competition: Best Historical Nonfiction AND Best Nonfiction Series!
Looks like I’m off to Las Vegas in October to accept the awards in a formal ceremony and participate in Nevada’s largest book festival. The news hasn’t quite sunk in yet, but I am pretty darned excited.
Aunt Phil’s Trunk may be appearing on a popular TV shopping show in the near future, too. But I don’t want to jinx my chances so I’ll post an update on that news once it is finalized!
Here are the links to the two latest television segments of Alaska Story Time with Aunt Phil.

All my best to all of you!
