Slender threads

I had an excellent time giving my 10 Things Every Writer Should Know talk at Long Hill Library last night.

The venue is absolutely beautiful. We had a great turnout, thanks to the efforts of Linda Tarantino, who first invited me to come and talk to her Neighbors & Newcomers group, and the library's, Marygrace Luderitz. Lots of people bought Fur-Face, which, as you can imagine, made me extra happy.

It's strange how these things come about. I met Linda when she heard me give a writing presentation at the Avalon Assisted Living Center in the Summer, but I only got that talk because the person they'd originally booked had to cancel at short notice. I volunteered to step in after they contacted the admin email address at NJAN (which gets forwarded to me).

I guess it just goes to show you never know where the slender thread of coincidence will lead you.

Every man on that transport died!
Harry wasn't there to save them,
because you weren't there to save Harry.


Okay, so it's not exactly the same...

Lol, I should say not. When I'm on stage, it's usually me who dies :)

My daughter, her husband and the baby are moving to NJ. Only for two years, but...sigh...can't get free of it!

But you know, one of these days, the stars will align and I'll be able to make it down to one of your events. At least we'll have Worcester!
