    I think we met at the Langdon Review weekend. You said that you are interested in horror, and I said that I would bring copies of my husband’s books to the brunch today. I looked for you but could not find you. If you will send me a mailing address, I will mail you signed copies of his books and of mine.

  2. Pat let me know that you will be joining our author lineup for Teen Bookfest by the Bay on Feb. 20. Can I get an email address for you so that I can send you some information?
    Our email is teenbookfestbythebay@gmail.com

  3. Do you have any plans to write a book on the history of the Valley?…

    • I have thought about it, sure, but there aren’t any solid plans. It would be a couple of years from now at the earliest.
