Filling My Calendar this Spring/Summer

I am looking forward to connecting with other writers, fans and industry professionals over the next few months.

On March 12th, Windward Boosters is teaming up with Barnes and Noble in Bellingham for a BookFair to benefit Windward High School programs. At 5 pm there will be five local YA writers: Nick James, Jesikah Sundin, Tara Ellis, Robert Slater and myself. We will each read a bit and then take questions and sign books!
