I’m honored to have been selected by the Maryland Library Association as this year’s recipient of the William G. Wilson Maryland Author Award. I’ll be attending their conference in May where I plan to champion the importance of historical fiction.
I was honored to be invited to participate in SPINE Magazine’s monthly author-curated feature listing six books at the top of my TBR pile. Click the link to read the article and maybe find a few books to add to your bedside table.
A few photographs from the amazing HNSNA conference held this year at the Gaylord in Washington DC’s National Harbor. It was my first time attending, but will definitely not be my last. The weekend started with dinner hosted by my fabulous agent where I got to eat lots of Italian food; drink wine; and chat books, history, and writing with my fellow Lyonesses. And it ended with a book signing seated between two historical heavy-hitters Jennifer Robson and Kate Quinn. Next year–HNSUK in Durham?

Last weekend, I attended Washington Romance Writers’ annual Hearts To You Reader Luncheon. As always, it was a fabulous event of yummy food, lively talk, and out of this world raffle baskets. Thanks to Joy Harris of Joyfully Reviewed and Barb Batlan-Massabrook for taking pictures because I was having way too much fun and completely forgot to pull out my camera.
