Along with our books, we offer these additional resources.


Our email newsletterThe Owl and the Tree – is sent out quarterly and contains an essay by Ann and Christina.  Topics range from environmental activism to writing, grandmothering to topical musings on life on Whidbey Island, and in the world. You can subscribe in the box on the right hand side of this page.

Archived copies of the newsletter (from 2016 to the present) are located here.


Christina and Ann each write a blog. You can read their archived postings (from 2011 to early 2023) here on this site, and you can subscribe and read newer posts on their respective new websites:

Christina’s new site also has reading guides for some of her titles that can be downloaded and used for book or study groups. In addition, there are links to some of her interviews and podcasts.


For writers, Christina’s Spiral of Experience handout, used for many years in her memoir writing seminar, The Self as the Source of the Story, is available here.
