Willma Gore grew up on a ranch in Owens Valley, California, at the foot of the High Sierra. Her first major article was published at age 20″an account of a 300-mile bicycle trip with her college girlfriend. Since then, she has published hundreds of travel articles, essays, profiles and short stories, as well as 19 children’s books. An adult how-to, Just Pencil Me In”Your Guide to Moving & Getting Settled After 60 (based on Gore’s 20 moves in 40 years)–was released by Quill Driver Books, in 2002. Willma’s humorous novel, Something’s Leaking Upstairs, was published by PublishAmerica in May 2005. The good reception of this novel has earned the attention of an agent for her second novel, House Calls, with the same setting and characters.
