Connecting with readers and other writers is one of the benefits of being an author. When I do a book signing and see readers and other writers there supporting my work, it warms my heart. But when I watch the participants also mingling and chatting with each other, it excites me. That is what a writing community is all about.

Indie Bookstores supporting local authors, book clubs discussing books, organizations that encourage reading and writing, and writing conferences are all ways to connect with others who love books. To help assist in this gathering of community, I’m sharing Upcoming Events here in the San Diego area (and sometimes elsewhere) that might be of interest to writers and readers. I encourage you to check them out!


What’s Up With Indy

New Book Release and Upcoming Conference


I’m fairly new to the lovey state of Washington and look forward to joining and becoming active within the writing community of this region. I also plan to stay connected to the San Diego writing community. I will be participating in opportunities as they make themselves available.

In September of this year I’ll be attending the SCWC (Southern California Writers’ Conference) in Irvine, CA, where I’ll once again lead the workshop, Before the Book: Your Online Persona. While in California I hope to set up a few book signings. I’ll keep you updated.

Duplicity: A Fox Walker Novel the third installment is now available! For those who haven’t yet read the first two Fox Walker novels, Tracker is currently on sale for 99 cents. Take advantage of the discounted price before the sale ends! 

If you are in a writing group or member of an organization, or have a favorite writing conference you want to recommend, I’d love to hear from you. And I’d be happy to post upcoming meetings and events here for readers to discover. Feel free to Contact me and I’ll pass along the information.

Writers helping other writers is the best part of the writing community!
