I had a great time at the conference–met some fascinating people!
It was a real thrill to share keynoting duties with two famous thriller writers, Steve Berry, “The Third Secret”, “The Romanov Prophecy” and James Grappando, “Got the Look” and “Hear No Evil”–both have more books, too. Also present was Margaret Weiss, who is an institution in the fantasy genre (Dragonlance series) and too many other top notch writers from various disciplines to name. The setting–Mission Bay, outside San Diego–was heavenly. I wanted to stay, walk on the beach and do a little shopping, but alas, it was not to be. I’m off again tomorrow morning, on another junket, this time to the Washington, D.C. area to meet with the Humane Society of the United States. You’ll be hearing a lot about that in future blogs and newsletters, so watch this space.
I hope you enjoyed Mojo’s visit. You can get to know her in “Deadly Gamble”, which will be in stores tomorrow. This, I hope, is only the first of many Mojo adventures. She and I have almost completed the second story, “Deadly Deceptions”, and it was a lot of fun. As Mojo likes to point out, she’s MUCH younger than I am, and a whole lot skinnier. I have to be up on my vitamins and get lots of rest when Mojo’s around!
I’ll try to post while I’m on the road, but I’m not very technical and I have trouble with even the “easy” high-speed connections in hotels. I’ll be home the 28th of October, and there will be a blog the 29th. Please be sure to check back.
As usual, I will have stories to tell!
