Conventions as a Learning Experience

| April 10, 2018

One of the things that I love the most about going to conventions like Norwescon is the opportunity to learn from other writers. Even if I don’t get a chance to go to many (or any) panels that I’m not on, I still wind up in conversations while working at our table, or at parties, […]

Norwescon!

| March 24, 2015

Norwescon schedules have begun popping up. I figured I’d add mine to the mix. On Friday, I will be in the dealer’s room, helping out my friend Friday by selling tea at her booth (Friday Afternoon) from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. (with a short break to go listen to Jeremy read at 10:30 a.m.). […]
