Join me for lunch!

Saturday will be special for me because I've been invited to the fifth annual Booklovers Luncheon in Baltimore. This event, co-sponsored by the Enoch Pratt Free Library and Karibu Books presents local authors in the most favorable way - with a meal. It will all start at 1 pm at the Metropolitan United Methodist Church at 1121 West Lanvale Street in Baltimore.

Filling in the Details

Yeah, yeah... I said the weekend was busy but didn't actually SAY anything, huh? Well, Saturday I got to play the presidential role at another Maryland Writers Association annual conference. Most people said they were impressed by the Maritime Institute of Technology and I'm pretty sure we'll be there next year.

No, it's not ALL about drinking...

Partying is not all I've done in the last couple of weeks. My signing at The Book Space inside the State Department headquarters building was both great fun and a solid success. My Stark and O'Brien books went over well there because I met folks who had been stationed in…

Older, yes. Wiser...?

I’m just coming down from my annual birthday weekend celebration, during which I make it a point to over-indulge in all important ways. It is a practical method of testing the limits of the systems.
