I have lived in the interior of Alaska off and on for nearly twenty years. Alaska gets in your blood. It lures you in then takes your soul hostage, becoming part of who you are, who you become. Every summer, the days are warm, long, and inviting. Tourists descend in droves, racing toward the next adventure, and a rich, colorful history provides plenty of businesses with trinkets to sell the Alaskan nostalgia. Anything seems possible when you are standing outside at midnight and the stars are nowhere to be found. That is until winter rolls back around.
I live and write in Fairbanks, a place where in winter, temperatures can hit -60° and darkness is a daily companion for months. It can and does play tricks on the mind. Throw in an independent, willful woman, with enough relationship blunders and baggage to sink a ship, and presto, words begin to spill all over anything that can be written on; words that are my salvation.
From sane to crazy and everywhere in between, that’s what Alaskan Vogue is. It’s my thoughts, carefully crafted in order to deliver my truth at any cost, and it’s how I buy my way out of a self imposed nether world. Alaskan Vogue is my story, my gift to the universe.
"I never thought the word “writer” would be used to describe me and the thoughts that tumble out of my head onto paper. It’s a new me, giving away words all neatly packaged up in rhyme."
