My 2017 Writing Year, So Far: Panels, Presentations & Publication

My 2017 writing year has already been a whirl of fabulous  writing events and appearances.

As you know, I taught a half-day workshop at the ASU Virginia G Piper...

Payson Book Festival 2016

We spent last Saturday at the Payson Book Festival. It was a very well-run event. The organizers and volunteers were awesome and we had a good time meeting new readers and getting to know some new Arizona authors, as well.

All set up and ready for the day to begin.

As usual with an author, a Story Monster lurked nearby. 😉

Book Signing

I have two major event appearances coming up quick. The first is the debut Cirque De Livre Writer’s Conference in downtown Mesa, Arizona May 27-19, 2016. I will be doing panels, signing books and hanging out with a lot of great authors, editors, illustrators, booksellers, screenwriters, etc., etc.

Here and There, This and That

I have been here and there, doing this and that. So here’s a quick update on what’s been going on in my world.

Me in my glorious RenFaire duds.

A huge shout out and thank you to Book Shoppe proprietor extraordinaire, Lady Ann Chamberlain. (She’s also an international bestselling author. Check out her website here🙂 This year’s Arizona Renaissance Faire appearance was another resounding success. Not only did I meet and speak with a huge number of new readers, as well as some fine aspiring authors, but I also received the Prince’s favor (and some lovely flattery). Huzzah! And I would be remiss if I did not thank my incredible assistant, Jen LaBuzz. Jen, I’m so glad your arms did not fall off!
