M. E. C.

M. E. C. lives in New York, where she is an international human rights lawyer by day and aspiring fiction writer by night.  She is currently working on a mystery novel set in her home state of Oregon, from which this story is adapted.

M. E. C.: The Oregon Trail

The earliest parts of our story are fuzzy, a pointillist painting made of memories borrowed from others. Rosa and I did our best to hold onto our family lore, but over time, details shook themselves loose, or morphed so slowly that we never saw it happening.
