Author extraordinaire River Jordan has invited me to be her guest on her radio show ClearStory Radio. The show is aired on Wed. 1-2, 107.1 fm and 103.7 fm and you can go to the website www.riverjordan.life/on-air.html to join the stream. She tells me we will be talking about writing and Thanksgiving. Whatever River wants to talk about will be sure to be entertaining and fun.

I was on the Misadventures in Mystery Writing Panel. I wanted to run out and get all the books I heard about from Lisa, Kelly, and Karen. The four of us on the panel had no problem finding things to talk about. It was fun to be on the panel with these accomplished writers. Yes, the full house was great, especially with 9 other sessions going on at that time. A very good day!!

Southern Festival of Books

0 Shares
October means the Southern Festival of Books, the biggest, most important literary event in Nashville! Over 20,00 book lovers are expected to attend, October 12-14, downtown. Authors from all over the U.S. will be presenting.
I’ll be on one of the panels with other Sisters in Crime writers. Our topic is “Misadventures in Mystery,” the lengths to which a crime writer will go for realism and research. I’m sure  Lisa Wysocky, Kelly Oliver, and Karen Robards have had a few misadventures, as have I! It’s always fun to get together with the Sisters (and Misters).
Our panel is Saturday, October 13, 2 pm at the Nashville Main Library’s Banner Room.

It’s free, it’s fun, and you may get to see the next great American writer!

Alana White and I will be on “Today in Nashville,” WSMV Channel 4, sometime during the 11-12 a.m. show on October 3, talking about the Southern Festival of Books. It’s the 30th anniversary of the Festival, and Alana has never missed! I’ve missed only a couple of years. We’re excited to share our experiences as writers who have attended – and benefitted from – the Festival, and we will probably get a chance to show our books! Tune in!

Alana and Phyllis –

West Meade Book Club Fun

What a delightful evening at the home of Ansley Wells, who hosted the West Meade Book Club ladies. My former student, Flora Murray, asked me to meet with them to discuss Pursuit in Provence, and I happened to mention the other two books in the series, as well. 🙂 These ladies are serious readers! I loved the questions, comments, and enthusiasm.

And I can’t say enough about the Mediterranean dinner that got us started thinking about Provence! What a gracious group. Thank you!
