As the ELEPHANT SPEAK launch date approaches, I thought I’d give everyone a run down for the month of March (so far):
March 4 – KATU “Afternoon Live” appearance (to air between 2-3 pm)
BOOK LAUNCH – Powell’s City of Books, 1005 W. Burnside Street, Portland, OR at 7:30 pm.
March 5 – Elephant Lands Keeper Talk – Oregon Zoo, 4001 SW Canyon Road, Portland, OR at 12:30 pm. Book signing to follow at Gift Shop.
March 6 – Roundabout Books – 900 NW Mt. Washington Drive #110, Bend, OR at 6:00 pm.
March 7 – Sunriver Books – 57100 Beaver Drive, Bldg. 25C, Sunriver, OR at 5:00 pm
March 14 – Bank Square Books, 53 West Main Street, Mystic, CT from 1-3 pm.
It’s long been my dream to participate in a reading/signing at Bank Square Books in Mystic, CT. THIS is what an independent bookstore is all about!
Well, last night my dream came true, in company with some of the finest writers I know. Many thanks to the vivacious Elissa Englund for treating us like royalty, and to the many folks who came out to listen, comment, and laugh. (Special thanks to my husband Ed for driving, and for lugging my books. Love you, honey.)

My fellow writers and I will be reading from our anthology “Tricks and Treats: A Collection of Spooky Stories by Connecticut Authors” at the 100 North Main Street branch of the Manchester Library on Monday, October 24, from 6:30 to 8.
We are also appearing at 6:00 on Wednesday, October 26, at Bank Square Books in Mystic.
Hope you’ll be able to come out for some fun, some spooky tales, and to support your local authors.
