Fulcrum’s Authors Blog Too!
January 18, 2011 Leave a comment
Our goal is to revamp and reenergize the Fulcrum blog in 2011. We have fresh new ideas, and we’re going to make sure our readers get to know our fabulous authors, learn all about our upcoming titles, and get the inside scoop on the publishing world. With all this excitement, we thought it would be fun to point our readers in the direction of the Fulcrum authors who are also diligently blogging away. It’s a great way to connect with our authors, hear what they’re up to, and learn about exciting events. Happy Reading!

Renee Wilkinson was raised as part of a long generation of homesteaders dating back to her great-grandparents in 1852. She calls herself a city girl at heart, and living in Portland, Oregon, has allowed her to straddle city and country life at the same time. Follow Renee as she shares the life of a city homesteader, or as she would say, “City chick gets her hands dirty on her urban homestead, planting an edible garden, raising backyard chickens, preserving the harvest, and working toward a greener future.”
