HNS Conference, Here. I. Come!

on June 21, 2021

The Historical Novel Society North American Conference is this week and not surprisingly, it’s online.

I’m excited to be on TWO panels, and here’s a link to the teaser for the first, Setting the Scene: Exploring Historical Settings through Genres.

And here’s the teaser for the second panel, Author Marketing Collectives.

If you’re at the conference this week, please come on by…Friday June 25 at 12:45pm PT for Setting the Scene; Sunday June 27 at 12:45pm PT for Author Marketing Collectives.

I’ll Be There!

I’m Jolabokaflod PDX-bound!

on November 16, 2020

Yep, you read that right. Jolabokaflod PDX, the annual Holiday Book Fair celebrated in Iceland, Portland (OR), and beyond, is just around the corner.

And I’ll be there (kinda, sorta, be there in Portland), weaving a tale about moonlight, magnolias, and how to make a long-ago historical setting come and stay alive.

Join Paper Lantern Writers Edie Cay, C. V. Lee, and me for Charm City: Historical Settings that Transport the Reader! on Sunday December 20th @ 3:30 pm PST.

Lee Edie Cay Every city has its own charm-Portland knows this better than anyone, as locals can attest-and authors can take you there by words alone. But how? Join discussion on the transportation of place.'

And don’t miss Paper Lantern Writers Linda Ulleseit & Kathryn Pritchett at their Finding Women’s Voices panel.


See you there!

I’ve got a new Pinterest board today!

on September 23, 2020

I started a new Pinterest board today, which means that something new is happening in my world.

Because for me, a new board = a new book or short story that I’m writing.

Today’s reason for starting a new board is a little different, and I can’t announce the WHY yet, but I wanted to share the new board with you.

It’s called The Golden Age of Mystery and here’s one of my first pins:

Right now it’s just a baby board, but in the next month it’s gonna be a monster!

Got some Golden Age of Mystery pins to share? Send them my way!
