"Part Annie Dillard, part Anne Lamott."- L.A. Times  


“Heather Lende is a terrific writer and terrific company: intimate, authentic, and as quirky as any of her subjects. I don’t want to get creepy here, but I hope that, when the time comes, she’ll look for the good in my life and write my obituary.”  -- Marilyn Johnson, author of The Dead Beat

 Praise for Find the Good 

  Find the Good  is already on the Pacific Northwest bestseller list! Please buy it from the independent bookstore nearest you.  It is also an audio book from Highbridge that I read, which is really neat. 

 I will be touring in Alaska and the Northwest through May (the schedules is below) and reading from my books and talking a bit about Haines on the Holland America ships that dock here each Wednesday all season. 

If you'd like an autographed or personalized copy of Find the Good, please email the Haines Babbling Book store at  babblingbook@aptalaska.net for the details. We are happy to help you.  

You can reach me through my  Facebook page and please check out my blog. There are lots of pictures of home and family as well of news of Haines. I  do my best to post a few days a week, sometimes more.
