How do you say "Tilting House" in Korean?

The mailman (yes, he is a man) just delivered my contract for The Tilting House to come out in South Korea. I'm pretty excited about this for two reasons:

1.  I have a soft spot for South Korea. Deb and I have hosted two Korean exchange students, each for an entire year. Eunjong stayed with us last year and was a delight. This year, we have Jina. Also (you guessed it) a delight. 

2.  I really like bibimbap. This is a Korean dish that, at least the way I had it, comes in a hot stone dish and has savory rice, veggies, maybe some meat or tofu, and a fried egg on top. Ooh man. So good. 

So bring on the Korean readers.

Mrs. Johnson and the Thunder Bomb Dogs

This is a link to a live storytelling event I participated in a few years ago, called Drunken Telegraph. Sort of like the Tacoma version of the Moth radio hour.

Apologies to the Humane Society. Keep in mind that I was young and stupid. I love dogs and work hard to treat them nice. Not so much in this old tale, which involves mean neighbors, Pomeranians, and explosives.
