New England Chapter Romance Writers of America Conference

May 3, 2019

I had a great time at the 2019 NECRWA Conference and met some fantastic authors. Jane C Esther and I met readers at the open signing event on Friday night. I can’t say enough good things about romance readers – the way they turn out to see their favorite authors, and all the ways they support authors both online and in person.

I heard that readers really like the small town feel of my first romance, A Chapter on Love. My next book also takes place in a small town in New England, this time in Vermont. I’m having so much fun writing and doing research for this story – one of the women is on the local roller derby league and one woman is a web-series actor. So I ‘m a new fan of our local roller derby team, and I also get to binge-watch some terrific web-series and talk with actors.

In between writing, and cheering on the local roller derby team, I was interviewed by Anita Kelly for her podcast, Lez Talk About Books Baby! You can have a listen here and wherever you find your podcasts.

Disclaimer: (I was so excited about A Chapter on Love being released into the wild and my first podcast interview, I may have been a bit too close to my mic a few times — warning, you may want to listen at a lower volume.)

Happy Spring everyone – the leaves are just starting to bud here in Vermont and we have a new broad-winged hawk neighbor who hunts for grubs on our front lawn every sundown. One of the best neighbors we’ve had.
