Thank you, dear readers! You have made a difference!
COVID-19 almost sank the Haines bookstore. A local author’s national fans saved sales.

I love writing that. And you are dear to me, more than you will ever know. My books are in many ways a series of intimate letters to strangers (and friends and neighbors in the small town where I live. Which is sort of weird sometimes, but that’s what I do.)
Thanks very much for stopping by, reading what I write, and especially sharing my books. You can find them at most libraries and independent bookstores and there are E-versions. Find the Good is an audio book that I narrate.
On the blog you will find photos and musings on my world and small-town Alaska life. Please Subscribe if you’d like to be notified of new posts. (It’s free.)
In other news, there’s a new book coming! Of Bears and Ballots is about my term on the Haines Borough Assembly, and will be published in June by Algonquin Books of Chapel Hill. Stay tuned for updates on the book tour.

“Democracy! It’s glorious chaos,” the owner of the local paper observes. It’s testimony to Lende’s special gift that, in spite of the pain and sadness involved in her political adventure, she leaves her readers with that same conclusion.
“Lende writes emotionally but never sentimentally, giving us the best Alaska memoir of late, maybe the best ever.“
