My favorite bookseller ever – Jerry Thompson.  I first met Jerry way back when my first novel Please Please Please came out.  He’s been supportive ever since.  And he’s funny as hell.   









Here I am with author Joan Steinau Lester.  She thinks she’s tall and I’m trying to help her out by shrinking in size. Joan is the author of Mama’s Child and I interviewed her right here on my website.

Joan is very tall--really!

Joan is very tall–really!




One of my favorite things to do is take a picture of the people who show up to my readings.  Sometimes it’s like a dream that I’m actually on stage reading from my novel and I want to remember and capture every moment.  (There are a few people in the crowd who surprised me big time when they showed up. They know who they are and I say THANK YOU)

Awesome Litquake audience!
