"I'm glad I'm alive."
Doris Louise Bailey, a teen in the Prohibition era, writes this sentiment over and over in her diaries as she struggles with a life-threatening bout of scarlet fever. But it's also an apt summation of how she lived in the years following her brush with death. Reaching for the Moon: More Diaries of a Roaring Twenties Teen (1927-1929) contains Doris's true-life adventures as she flirts with boys, sneaks sips of whiskey and bets on racehorses - breaking rules and hearts along the way. In Portland, Oregon, she's the belle of the ball, enjoying the attention of several handsome gents. In Arizona, she rides a wild strawberry roan, winning races and kissing cowboys. From hospital wards and petting parties to rodeos and boarding school, this older, more complex Doris faces the dawning of the Depression and her own emergence as a young adult with even more humor, passion and love of life than she showed in her earlier diaries. Readers of all ages will relate to her pursuit of true love, freedom, and adventure in her own time and on her own terms.

Read information about the authorYou found me! Author, blogger, editrix, journalist, poet...a little bit of all the right ingredients.
Background Check: I'm an award-winning writer, blogger, journalist and poet. I've been a writer all my life. I just finished a three-year term as Poet Laureate of Alameda (city). I've been a newspaper+magazine editor and a freelance writer for years. I currently blog for a book site called All Things Book.
Bad Habits: Old books are my crack. I love Jane Austen and British lit. I got my master's in early 20th century British literature, and that nerdiness hasn't stopped. I have a thing for DE Stevenson and Nevil Shute, Dorothy Whipple and Rumer Godden. I'm always haunting used book sales, looking to rediscover forgotten early 20th century women authors who still have something to say.
