Me - CIRCA 2009 -- Baltimore Book Festival

SEPTEMBER 27 -- The Baltimore Book Festival

I'm VERY excited to be heading to Baltimore for this Festival! I'm also waiting to find out my book reading time in the Author's Tent! As soon as I find out ... I will post that!

The Baltimore Book Festival was the first official book festival I attended back in 2009 -- when I was a ROOKIE! I had one book, had no idea what I was doing and had absolutely no idea what to expect! I met James Warhola at this event -- he is the author of  Uncle Andy's .  He is the nephew of ANDY WARHOL. It was super cool when he came over to the tent I was in and read - The Life of Bud and he LIKED it! A moment I will never forget!
I also met another wonderful author at this event K. Michael Crawford . Sadly, last September she lost a 9 year battle with cancer! She was such a pleasure to talk to and learn from at this event! I do not have any pictures with her ... because she kept an illusion from her readers about WHO she was!
I can't wait to be back in Maryland and eat some crab cakes and soft shelled crab!!!!
