Here's your chance!

Have you always wanted to take a writing workshop with me? Maybe you don't feel ready for a big conference or class, but are looking for something a little more relaxed and lowkey?

If you live in the Chicago area, you are in luck. Tomorrow afternoon, Tuesday Oct. 8, I will be hosting an informal workshop through the Fremont Public Library in Mundelein, IL. The details are here. Registration is free and open to the public. I'll be bringing a pocketful of miracles for you and we will have a great time.

Later that evening, I will be speaking at the Lake Zurich Performing Arts Center in an event sponsored by the Ela Public Library. This is also free and open to the public. Details are here.

Looking forward to seeing you there!

Book club members have been some of my most enthusiastic and careful readers. I’m thrilled to share my work with you, answer your questions and tell you some of the stories behind the stories. This is our spot, just for us. Here, we can chat:  If I’m nearby, I’ll come and visit your club. Otherwise, we can Skype, talk over the phone or email. Sometimes, I’ll send surprises or hold contests.
