Friday, October 10: It was back to Richmond for the James River Writers Conference, which featured such greats as David Baldacci and Adriana Trigiani. I participated on an afternoon panel: The Fun and Money of the Romance Game that also featured Jenny Gardiner, Judi McCoy and Cathy Maxwell. Again, we had another tremendous audience that had so many good questions.
Saturday, October 11: The day started off on a grand note with the Virginia Romance Writers monthly meeting featuring the fabulous Caridad Pinero author of paranormals and romantic suspense. Her presentation on dialogue was so insightful and had me visiting my local library to check out all the books she referenced. If that wasn’t enough, I headed back up I-95 to visit the Marine Corps Museum at Quantico to gather background information for my latest book. The museum was beyond impressive and I was sorry I arrived so late in the day and couldn’t have stayed longer. I will definitely return!
