Baltimore Book Festival, Here I Come!

September 23, 2016

I’m looking forward to participating in the Baltimore Book Festival on Saturday, September 24th at Baltimore’s Inner Harbor.  This three-day festival is free and open to the public. If Baltimore is convenient for you, I hope you’ll come by and say hello.

I’ll be moderating a panel discussion called, “Celebrating 75 Years of Avon Romance:  Author Chat with Avon Authors” along with Avon stars Jennifer Armentrout, Tracey Livesay, Laura Kaye, Jennifer McQuiston, and Alisha Rai.

The panel begins at 2:00 p.m. in the Maryland Romance Writers tent, which is in the “Rash Field” area of Baltimore’s Inner Harbor. If you love books, festivals, romance, or Baltimore, come out and enjoy authors and booksignings all weekend.
