I grew up with a driveway full of Volkswagens, and I spent most of my summer riding in the back of a VW bus while my parents drove us back and forth between our home and their cottage in northern Ontario. I learned to drive in a '65 Volkswagen Bug, and I keep hinting that a VW Bus would make the perfect birthday present.
While I'll always regret being born too late for Woodstock, I was lucky enough to make it to Woodstock '94. I'm sure it could never compare to the original festival, but there was music and mud, songs and celebration!
Some of my favorite vacations have been the cross-country trips I've taken with my family. We planned places to stop along the way, but we never hurried and always welcomed a detour to discover to new places or a pause in small towns to meet new people.
Writing Cross Country was an easy choice for a sequel to Miss E. Not only did I get to tell some of Bets's story, but I was able to spend time day dreaming about Volkswagens, cross-country adventures, and three days of peace and music.
