I’m interfering with your digestion by giving the luncheon speech. I’ll be talking about boots on the ground research. I’ve done two ridealongs with the US Coast Guard for two Coastie novels, I wrote a column for Alaska magazine for five years where I got lots of ideas for the Kate and Liam novels, and — so far — I’ve been to France, China, Turkey, Italy, and England for research for an historical novel called Silk and Song. I’ll tell you all about it.
I’ve attended this conference for the last two years. It’s small and intimate and you get quality programming and a lot of up close and personal with the authors. I really like it. And I love the Biltmore pool.
See you this Friday!
