The event's goal of promoting women and their communities aligns perfectly with the feisty, "you go girl!" spirit of LUCY LOVES SHERMAN, so participating was a no brainer!
The interview was also broadcast on Facebook Live and affiliated You Tube stations. It was so much fun and I'm grateful for the opportunity to chat about MIND YOUR MONSTERS, HYPNOSIS HARRY and the forthcoming LUCY LOVES SHERMAN.
The event is being hosted by the Junior League of Martin County, and for more, please visit:

Another day, another book event :) Thank you so much to the utterly amazing staff of Citrus Grove Elementary! I was so flattered to be the the only author at your Camp Read-A-Lot. Between the presentations, the book fair, and the bonfire I was in Author Visit Heaven! (And yes, I came home and made s'mores in the microwave.)
