Hollins University Signing

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of their literary program, Hollins University held an alumnae author reading and signing.  I’m a graduate of the university and wanted to return to show my support.  I had a great time meeting former teachers, fellow classmates and alumnae.

The Hollins Bookstore had a nice display of my latest novels.

I took a quick tour of campus, stopping here at my old dorm.

Lavender Fields

I had the chance yesterday to visit the Herb Faire held at Lavender Fields ( in Glen Allen, Virginia.  This farm is one of my favorite places to buy herbs and plants.  While at the farm I not only stocked up on herbs, local honey, farm fresh eggs and lavender but also took the time to have afternoon tea.  Great fun!

Lots of great herbs and plants to choose from here.

More RT Photos

Friends just sent me a few more pictures from last weekend’s Romantic Times conference so I thought I’d post.  Again, it was one great conference.

A reader stopped by to say hi at the book signing.
