Stories from Tim Cahill at the Book Passage Travel Conference

Tim Cahill regaled the audience with stories at the Book Passage Travel Conference. Tim is America’s best known and funniest travel writer, founding editor of Outside Magazine and is the author of more than 7 books.

In his writing classes he teaches aspiring authors how to achieve “Flowbie.” This is a state of mind in which you are so totally engaged by your own imagination that you lose sense of time and place and awake a couple hours later with writing that you never knew you had in you.

Tim’s conversational style is always educational and is often laugh out loud funny. I had the pleasure of interviewing Tim in his home in Livingston, Montana among the many artifacts he has collected in three decades of adventure travel. You may read that interview in my book Lost Angel Walkabout-One Traveler’s Tales.
