Hutson, who describes herself as a painter, poet, comedian, and author was featured on Good Morning America, Showtime, and CNN was invited to give a presentation on alcoholism by the Office of Residence Life at Providence College.

    I pressed Grady for more details but he refused, determined that we catch the next portal to The Central Valley rather than risk suspicion. We wove through the narrow dirt paths until the trees cleared and waited beside the grassy plan where portals usually arrived during later hours. When its golden glimmer materialized, we emerged into its tingling warmth and moved through space and time until we swirled gently into being outside the center of town. Grady and I glanced around carefully, and saw nothing but our own foggy reflections in The Great River. Grady walked quickly without uttering a word, and I followed him along the river’s edge until we reached a massive tree… Liam’s tree.
