One For The Record Books

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.)

Ghostly Appearances

tricksMy 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.

See you there!

A Good Time Had By All

Thanks to everyone who joined us last night – October 18 – at Bentley Memorial Library in Bolton, CT for a reading of excerpts from TRICKS AND TREATS: A Collection of Spooky Stories by Connecticut Authors.

We were fortunate to have appropriately spooky weather, plus–best of all–an engaging and interested audience who served up some extremely thought-provoking questions. And let’s not forget the cider and cookies!

(And, by the way, I love those three people with me. A lot.)
