Geocaching GPS: Great Personal Stories is a series of short-story anthologies about geocaching, edited by Kimberly Eldredge and published by New Frontier Books.
The first book, Great Personal Stories of Romance, Adventure, and Connection, was launched on May 23 2015, at Geowoodstock 13 in Boonesboro MD. Geowoodstock is a yearly geocaching mega-event, like an international convention for geocachers. My story, “Bobbing for Bob,” is on p. 63. More about how and why I wrote this story, with pictures, is here in this blog: Geocaching GPS: My First Publication that isn’t a Scientific Paper. I gave a reading at the Mountain View Public Library last year, which I blogged about here, under the title “Writerly Things.”
The second book, Great Personal Stories of Geocaching Firsts, was launched on July 3, 2016 at Geowoodstock 14 in Denver, CO. It contains my story, “Gentle Icelandic Sheep,” about caching in Iceland with kids. It also contains a story by my husband (caching name gw0143) called “Up the Creek With Just One Paddle.”
Geocaching GPS, Great Personal Stories of Romance, Adventure, and Connection (Book 1) is available from Amazon.com, and from the geocaching store here.
