BookExpo America, Los Angeles 2008

Signing my sequel, LUNA, at the Horror Writers Association booth. Thanks to all those great authors I signed with over the weekend and to all of IVY COLE's fans!

 Meeting author Dean Koontz was a highlight of the show. Great writer, equally wonderful person (and that's my book cover he's signing!).

Author and Gunny Sergeant Nick Popaditch (red tie) with wife April and co-author Mike Steere. I met a true Marine Corps hero and am proud to have his book. Look for it in the stores (Once a Marine).

Getting a bubbly dose of inspiration from Marilu Henner and her new book, Wear Your Life Well.

 Hazel Cole Kendle and Jennifer Liu Bryan (not pictured) debuted a delightful new Christmas book: Cole Family Christmas (no relation to my IVY COLE  series). They even made cookies for the show. What can beat that?

DragonCon, Atlanta 2007

Having a howling good time at DragonCon '07 in Atlanta! Here's Oscar Award-winning Lou Gossett Jr. and me in the Walk of Fame room. It was wonderful getting to meet such a talented, classy man.

Frank Stallone wandered by my author's table and I nabbed him for a hug. What a great guy, and his music is amazing!

And in other fun moments from the show...
