I welcome and work with clients from all over, but I always love meeting face to face when we can. Come and see me talk about editing, writing, and wording in general at the following events, and please make sure to introduce yourself!

September 26 to 28: Central Coast Writers Conference

I am honored to be on the faculty at this wonderful, intimate writers conference at Cuesta College near gorgeous Morro Bay, CA. I will be giving two workshops and participating in two panels as well as giving private critique sessions to students. More details to come.

I’m really looking forward to celebrating the 50th year of this, my favorite mystery writing conference, in Dallas… with diamonds… and denim… and Halloween, too!
