It’s the first call for Fall 2016! One year ago, we were heading to Big Stone Gap to celebrate the premiere of the movie. Happy memories of a glorious parade and good friends! If you haven’t seen our movie, curl up with some popcorn and catch it on Netflix, or own your own copy. Don’t miss the soundtrack, it’s a beauty.
As I put the final touches on the new novel Kiss Carlo, out May 2, 2017, come out and see me on the road. Can’t wait to see you at the SOLD OUT Ocean City Library Annual Author Luncheon on October 6, 2016.
October 11 – We’re at the Barter Theater in Abingdon, Virginia with The Origin Project. The fabulous Margot Lee Shetterly brings her instant New York Times bestseller Hidden Figures to our students as our guest author.
