Big News: Piper was accepted to graduate school and will pursue her Master's Degree in English beginning this fall, 2008. Perhaps Samuel Taylor said it best: "Writers happen to the best of families." Keep on writing!
Piper is embarking on a writing adventure and will co-author a book (publication in 2009) for sustainable agriculture, conservation, and green waste options in American Samoa. Composting, of course, will be covered.
A second writing project is also in the works. Will keep you posted!
Piper recently returned from a trip to China. An article on the city of Turpan (northwest China near Mongolia) will be published in late 2007 by Panorama Study Abroad magazine (pages 15-16). Look for more writing on China when Piper publishes the Travelogue to her website early next year.
