I don't know how many people there are with a million dollars who are inclined to give it to a writers' retreat.
I would be ecstatic if the very first writer to step foot in a Storyknife cabin was an Alaska Native woman writer.
Unless you are Stephen King, a book signing is attended by maybe 40 or 50 people.
I've been approached in the past to option my stories for television, but prior to Evergreen, there were no assurances the production would be filmed in Alaska.
My stories are Alaska stories, and they need to be told in Alaska. Evergreen Films is located in Alaska; the company does amazing work, and I am thrilled at the prospect of working together.
