Litquake, a festival that highlights Bay Area authors, takes place is various venues in San Francisco and Oakland. I read along with serval fabulous authors at Lake Chalet, a restaurant and bar that sits on Oakland’s Lake Merritt. Fun times.
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.
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)
