These are a few references to my tsunami blogging and a few other mentions on my writing in general that are publicly available. I apologize if this comes across as patting my own back, but I'm I'm trying to get some bylined articles in the press as well and using this post as a "references" page.
Evelyn Rodriguez is superb writer with a keen eye and a sense of irony. She was slammed by the tsunami at Phuket Beach, had her knee gashed open so she could see the bone, had to hobble the streets of Bankok on crutches to get a temp passport and had the SJ Mercury report on her return as if it were an adventure vacation of some sort. She talks about how losing her clothes, getting too little sleep and having no shampoo become trivial whle seeing the trauma and personal losses of others. I've been reading dozens of personal experience reports, but hers is the most moving, the most informative and the wisest.
