Speaking Today

I am speaking today (Saturday, 05/26) at the California Writers Club in Fremont on the Devry College campus, 6600 Dumbarton Circle,(rm 223) . All are welcome. I think I’m talking about  The Accidental Activist and why I see ‘Fiction as a Vehicle to Social Justice.’ But you never know!

The meeting starts at 2pm and I speak at 3pm. Maybe see you there?

Meet Me Today?

Yesterday was the first of a 2-day CWC Fremont Branch’s Holiday Book Fair. Today we will continue to meet readers and other writers between 1-4pm, at the Union City Public Library, 34007 Alvarado-Niles Road.

Fremont CWC Holiday Book Fair

It was a lot of fun to meet friends, readers, people who follow my blog. Best-selling author, Ellen Sussman, made an appearance and addressed the gathering. I met Charlotte Cook, from Komenar Publishing, and my friend Karin Ireland, author of The Job Survival Instruction Book and many others.   

I also met Geraldine Solon, author of a series of succesful romance novels including Chocolicious and Love Letters. Geraldine organized the Book Fair – so thank you, Geraldine for all your hard work.

If you are around the East Bay today, please drop in and chat. It’s a great way to find a few more gifts for the holidays and support local authors.
