In October I attended the InD’Scribe conference in Burbank, California and the Florida Writer’s Associaton Conference in Orlando. One of the nice things about attending a conference in the Los Angeles area is I can catch up with old friends. I met some at various restaurants across the city and one friend came to the conference to see me. The Florida Writers Association Conference gave me an opportunity to meet fellow authors and attend workshops. My day begins at 7am with breakfast and runs until around 10pm with workshop after workshop!
Here I am with my good friend, Jackie. She’s read all my books and has vacationed with me for years. Her husband hates hot weather, so she’s the perfect person to go down to Mexico with. It’s hard to believe she was once my apartment manager in Encino, California. How do you like the new table cover? I guess this is my unofficial cover reveal for Drake’s Nightshade. Sorry, no publication date on that book. Blame it on Hurricane Irma!
Here are a couple of photos from the Royal Palm Awards night at the Florida Writer’s Association. The woman at the bottom left corner is Carol Post. She won the award for Best Romance. I attended a fabulous workshop she put on and ended up buying her book. Carol is a super lady!
