One of the cardinal rules for writers… or perhaps guideline is a better term… is to pay attention to the efforts of other writers. The purpose of reading their novel or listening to their audio book is to fine tune your own writing techniques.

To that end,  I attended a luncheon and author talk yesterday at An Unlikely Story in Plainville, MA. Visiting author Jane Green delighted the sold-out audience with her tales of her personal life, her story inspirations, her editors and publishers, and her return to more character-driven novels.

The event price included a copy of her latest book ‘The Sunshine Sisters’, which she graciously autographed before taking this photo with me.

Now I’m doubly inspired to finish writing my second Gwen Andrews story titled ‘Where There’s Smoke, There’s Trouble.’

kent-county-bookmobileYou may or may not be aware that I was born and raised in mid-state Delaware. When I was five years old, my family moved from the little town of Kenton to a house in the country on Massey’s Mill Pond outside Smyrna .

During the late 50’s and 60’s, when my mother, sister, and I owned pleasure horses or ponies, we would ride them to the end of our dirt road every few weeks and climb aboard the Kent County Bookmobile to check out a few stories and keep our young minds busy.

After college, I followed my heart to southeastern Massachusetts, and live there still.

I am so excited to share with you that I’m driving to Delaware next week to present my author talk titled ‘The Ins and Outs of Writing My Debut Mystery’. Not on the Bookmobile, but at the Kent County Public Library this coming Tuesday evening, Nov 1, at 6:30 pm. Address: 497 S. Red Haven Lane, Dover, DE.

In addition to the Kent County Public Library, I’m scheduled at the following venues during the remainder of next week:

Wednesday, Nov 2, noon, Mamie A. Warren Senior Center, 1775 Wheatley’s Pond Rd, Smyrna, DE

Friday, Nov 4, 10 am, Modern Maturity Center, 1121 Forrest Avenue, Dover, DE

Saturday, Nov 5, 10:30 am – 2:30 pm, Dover Public Library Author Day, 35 E. Loockerman St, Dover, DE

Ending my talk with a brief reading from ‘The Uninvited Guest’, I’ll answer questions about writing my story and gladly autograph copies of my book.

I’m hoping that a few of my J.B. Moore High School classmates who still live in the area will join the audience at one of these locations!

See you there!
