Events: Mine and fellow writers’

Coming up in 2019

Book Launch and Signing
Baltimore Book Festival
Poe House Author Series

Meet me at The Greyhound

The GreyhoundLove Letters & Gingerbread, a Christmas novella set in 1831 Annapolis, will be released on July 25—It’s Christmas in July!

To celebrate I’ll be signing books and meeting readers at The Greyhound, an independent bookstore, in Berlin, Md.

A trip to Berlin is always worth the drive. Recently dubbed “America’s Coolest Small Town,” it’s the setting for the Julia Roberts-Richard Gere rom-com, “Runaway Bride” and the young adult fantasy, “Tuck Everlasting.” It’s full of great little shops, antiques dealers and restaurants. And a very good bookstore.

I’ll also bring the second edition of DIVIDED LOYALTIES during the event.

Baltimore Book Festival

logo-bbfThe Baltimore Book Festival will be held later in 2019 and, here’s big news, it will be held in conjunction with Light City Baltimore. Mark your calendars for the 2019 extravaganza to be held at Baltimore’s beautiful Inner Harbor.

The Maryland Romance Writers will sponsor a series of author panels and special events Nov. 1-3.

Reading at Poe House Baltimore

screen shot 2019-01-26 at 3.57.23 pmThe house museum where Edgar Allan Poe officially began his writing career hosts a monthly Author Series.  Events are held second Sundays throughout the year.

I’m scheduled to read Sunday, Dec. 8, at 2 p.m.. I plan to read from “MS. Found in a Bottle,” Poe’s first work written in Baltimore to win a writing prize.

I’m quite honored to join this list of excellent scribblers—and in the house where one of my writing heroes, Edgar Allan Poe, got his start.

There’s no admission for the Author Series, beyond the usual fee, $8 for adults and $6 for students/military/seniors at the door. Arriving early to see the tiny five-room house is a good idea. The house is open 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursdays through Sundays. I’m often there on Thursdays, volunteering up on the second floor.
