March 23, 2019, I was pleased to be part of a twenty-author ReadLocal Author Fair at Marion Public Library in Marion, OH. My sincere thanks to Craig Simpson and the library staff for their gracious hosting. I met so many new writers to feature on my site in 2020, including my table mate Dee Garretson. Yeah!

2018 brought about a number of fun activities, most centered in the fall.

I was invited back to the North Hills Book Club to discuss my second novel,

and I gave a reading at Sinclair Community College after they published one of my essays in FLIGHTS, their literary journal.
