South Beach author publishes Shoes Full of Sand
What is it really like to move from Silicon Valley to the Oregon Coast? Author Sue Fagalde Lick shares tales of her transformation into an Oregonian in her new book Shoes Full of Sand. A memoir told in essays, the book explains why a couple doing just fine in San Jose would choose to relocate to Lincoln County and what it’s like to start over where you don’t know anyone.
It also addresses such gripping queries as where are a dog’s knees, how long does it have to rain before one should start building an ark, and does radiation treatment make a person glow in the dark.
Lick spent many years as a newspaper reporter and editor for community newspapers in California and Oregon. As a freelance writer, she has published three books on Portuguese Americans, Stories Grandma Never Told, The Iberian Americans, and Azorean Dreams, as well as a how-to book called Freelancing for Newspapers. She has taught writing classes at Oregon Coast and Chemeketa community colleges and is co-founder of the Oregon Coast branch of Willamette Writers. Her freelance articles have appeared in Oregon Coast, Oregon Business, Northwest Senior News, Seaport Magazine, The Oregonian, and the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, among others.
Shoes Full of Sand can be purchased in paperback at local bookstores, online at Amazon.com or at www.suelick.com/Sand.html. It is also available as an e-book for Kindle and other formats.
