The Upside Of Hunger Extras


Outtakes: The Wagon Incident

This story didn’t make the final edit, but it’s one that stuck in my mind from the first time I heard Adam tell it. Maybe it kind of set the tone for the story in my subconscious. I think you’ll enjoy it whether you’ve read The Upside of Hunger yet or not. It takes place in early 1929, on a beautiful, warm day in late spring.

About The Author


Roxi Harms is a first-born, bossy, type A, recovering businesswoman. After a fast-paced career at a multi-national software company and then operating a highly successful consulting firm she co-founded, she surrendered to the pull of the written word, succumbing to a life-long affliction whose first symptom was begging her grade one teacher for more reading and writing homework.

At eight, she inquired earnestly of her mom what jobs she could get when she grew up, that would pay her to read all day. Born into a remote Mennonite community in northern British Columbia, Canada, she spent her childhood surrounded by hardworking farmers and loggers, then completed high school in a slightly bigger nearby community of some 2,000 residents before curiosity about the world beyond the horizon, and hunger for bigger challenges drew her away. But the grounding of that simple childhood has never faded, and the increasing complexity of the world continually strengthens her appreciation of those early years.

Roxi loves nothing more than the joy of discovery, whether it be exploring distant shores or losing herself in a story well told, curled up with a book in the creaky old swinging chair on the porch of her cabin on Okanagan Lake, in British Columbia, Canada. Find out about Roxi’s storytelling at
