What an enjoyable day at the Lifeway store in Buford at the Mall of Georgia. Nora StLaurent was such a gracious hostess who is the book club guru at the store. She has a wonderful personality and so much fun to talk with. And I thought I read a lot, but she has me beat on that score.
I was so impressed with Jeff Struecker and of course, I had to have his biography and his thriller for my son. The store was busy today and I met so many nice readers. The picture of me and the blonde is my dear friend, Connie from Cleveland who drove an hours to come to the signing. Ane Mulligan, The Zone Officer for the Operating Board for the ACFW came as well. We've chatted online, but this was the first time to meet face to face. What a vivacious, lively writer!
Just a geat way to spend a Saturday, and as usual, the staff at Lifeway are super!!

I'll be representing LifeWay's National Fiction Book Event tomorrow, Saturday, May 16th from 11-1 pm at the Mall of GA in Buford. I'm really excited about this! I'll be sharing the signing table with a highly decorated X-Army Ranger, Jeff Struecker, who was prominently featured in the movie Black Hawk Down. He is now a chaplain for the Army and writes thrillers. Check his website for further info.
Check out Atlanta Examiner online for further reading about the event. Here's the link .

I hope if you're in the area,stop by--I'd love to meet you. The store in behind the mall near Target. Their phone #770-831-7707.

Tuesday night I was the guest of a local area book club that had just finished reading No Place for a Lady. The fellowship was great and they picked my brain about the details of writing, and of course, I had fun sharing the writing process.

I'm on deadline for the 3rd book in the Heart of the West series, but I'll be back posting on a more frequent basis in the near future.

Happy Trails...

I hope you're having wonderful Mother's Day! This will be a brief post to announce the winner of the drawing for a copy of my book. It was drawn fair and balanced, as Fox News would say--from a LSU baseball cap by my husband. He drew Michelle's name, who wrote that her mom was "gifted". I really like that because so many moms never realize how gifted they are because they are constantly multi-tasking and on the go!

I chose this verse for my mom's headstone in 1998--"Her children arise up, and call her blessed"...Proverbs 31:28a. I miss her so...

So I salute all Mothers everywhere for how you influence, guide, protect, minister, inspire, give, mentor, and teach but most of all for your unconditional love! Happy Mother's Day!
