San Mateo County Fair

The San Mateo County Fair closed yesterday after a 12-day run.  There were a number of events for authors.  Twice, I read my winning short story, The Accident.  Other short story writers, memoirists and poets read their entries.  There were some excellent entries.  I particularly enjoyed the humorous poems of Ida Lewenstein—her poems are really fun and easy to follow.

 On June 19, I was part of an authors’ panel on the topic of So You Want to Write a Novel.  Other panelists were Jon Cory, Judith Marshall, and Teresa LeYung Ryan.  Geri Spieler was the moderator.  Our discussion focused on topics of interest to writers and would-be writers of fiction.  (See my earlier post on advice for anyone who wants to write a novel.)

 On Thursday, June 24, at 11:30 am, I will be interviewed by Kim McMillon at the Writers’ Sanctuary blog talk radio.  Please tune in.  This interview will be archived so it will also be accessible after this date.
