Wild Ride Home is a joyous memoir of finding love and losing love, of going away and coming home, of Alzheimer's, cancer, and lost pregnancies, of fly fishing and horsemanship, of second chances, and, ultimately, the triumph of love and the strength of one resilient and hilarious family. Christine Hemp has aired her essays and poems on National Public Radio's Morning Edition; she has sent a poem of hers on a NASA mission to monitor the birth of stars; and she is currently on the Humanities Washington Speakers Bureau with her talk From Homer to #hashtags: our Changing Language. She is the author of That Fall (poems) and has received a Washington State Artist Trust Fellowship for Literature. She lives on the Olympic Peninsula with two horses, two cats, and one husband.

Anna Quinn is the author of the “The Night Child,” published by Blackstone Publishing, 2018. Recently listed as a #1 Amazon bestseller in Psychological Literary Fiction, it was also selected as Ingram’s 2018 Best Book Club Book. She is the founder of the Writers’ Workshoppe and Imprint Books in Port Townsend and has twenty-eight years of experience teaching writing workshops across the country.
