Someone to watch over meIf you want me at your convention, favorite bookstore, or authors’ event, go on and drop me an email with details. There’s a good shot that I will not be alone but in the presence of my better-half, Pip Ballantine. So yeah, you could say we are a 2-for-1 deal!

And if you attend one of these conventions, make sure to stop by and say “Hi.” We’d love to chat with you if time allows.
