Today was the first Lifelong Learning class, “Writing Your Story,” at Lipscomb. We actually meet at the beautiful Longview Mansion. It’s a full house this time, and, as always, the participants are delightful. I am so fortunate to be teaching in this program!
Writers Group Christmas Party
Our Christmas party is always fun. We read, critique, talk, eat, drink, and sing Christmas songs.
Merry Christmas to a great group of talented writers and friends!
Southern Book Festival 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!!
Invited to “Today in Nashville”
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!
A good time at Killer Nashville!
WNBA Mystery Panel – A Big Success and A Lot of Fun
In spite of terrible rains over the weekend, the Mystery Panel at Green Hills Library was well attended. Participants were Lee Wilson (Jenna Brown), Dana Carpenter, Peggy Peden, and me. I can’t wait to read their new books. What a great audience, too!
