"The way it was written was so beautiful it transported me there instantly. It was creative writing at its finest." Alex Muir, My Life-Long Holiday
Two Lane Gems, Vol. 1 is a road trip romp from the Chicago area to San Diego and back. Theresa grabs her laptop, her camera, and her journal and makes (asks, she means, asks) her husband, Jim, to drive 6,479.5 miles through thirteen states so she can fulfill a childhood dream.

Starting at the most important archaeological site in North America, their journey takes them through sand dunes, forests, plains, and mountains. They stayed in haunted hotels, a rustic cabin, charming bed and breakfasts, and the oldest motel in Arizona.
"It was such an easy read and I just kept wanting to go to the next chapter, but found myself missing the previous chapter as soon as I left it." ~Amazon review
Two Lane Gems, Vol. 1 is an uplifting, inspirational, and often humorous love letter to America. From cliff dwellings to buried cars to more hoodoos than you can shake a switchback at, this tale follows their round-about journey to find the country’s treasures.
