Learning how to fly

My latest interview as radio correspondent is from Puget Ocean in Washington and featuring a story about landing a plane during a simulated power failure. My instructor was a stunt pilot and gave me one golden rule: “Anything you do, I can fix. But please, don’t turn the plane upside down. It’s not designed for that.” I got to take, fly anywhere and land… or try to!

My award arrived in the mail for the anniversary edition of Falling Uphill. Yay! You could call this my coming of age journey. The sequel is planned for 2037.
