San Diego #RWA2016

The 2016 Romance Writers of America Conference is now over. It was special to me in many ways, but most of all because it was in my hometown of San Diego. A couple highlights and pictures ~

A high school friend, Jose Cruz, is Chief Executive Officer of the San Diego Council on Literacy and was instrumental in setting up the Literacy Signing on July 13th. I’m only sorry that I did not get a picture with him. He was busy putting out fires…

Seeing another high school friend, Pam L. and her best buddy Pam B. show up at the literacy signing made my night!  The signing happens before every annual conference and with San Diego’s event, topped One Million Dollars that has been donated to helping with literacy in the USA!

High School Friend & and resident trouble-trouble maker. (Love her!)

I loved getting together with the Harlequin authors and editors (who came all the way from London!)

RWA 2016 in San Diego!

RWA 2016 logoI’m looking forward to attending the 2016 Romance Writer’s of America Conference in San Diego this summer. I haven’t been to one of these larger-than-life conferences in several years. It will be great to connect with the Harlequin editors and the writers I haven’t seen lately. I keep in contact with many of them on social media, but there is nothing like the energy that happens when we all get together in person. I can already feel the excitement building…

If you are in or near San Diego in July, please stop by the ‘Readers for Life’ Literacy Autographing event on July 13th and say hi. I’ll be with 500 other authors signing their books. All the proceeds go to promote literacy so it is a very worthy cause and the event is free!
