“Fast Into the Night,” my debut memoir, was released by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt on February 2, 2016. After a festive book launch in Anchorage, I traveled on a book tour to events in Seattle, Bellingham, Portland, Minneapolis, Boston, Newburyport, and Vermont. In the following months, speaking engagements about Alaska and my story took me to San Diego, St. Louis, and a variety of places in Alaska.
