People often ask how I could have moved so often for my various jobs, and lived in so many places, especially when I have so many books? The answer is simple: I discovered long ago that if there were only one word to describe my life, that word would be “Nidifugous”: it means “Fleeing the nest immediately after hatching!”

In short, much as I’ve loved every place I’ve ever lived, I have loved to discover the next place even more. So here, as many readers have requested, I’ve posted photos of, and stories about, some of my favorite houses, places where I’ve been inspired over the years to write my books and stories.
