I had a great time at Author Night Saturday, Mar. 19, 2016 at the historic Estelle Stair Gallery. It was fun to hang with other authors and chat with readers. I always learn something about how to be a better writer at these events. Plus, the gallery is such a magical place. It’s a dream come true to have my books sharing gallery space with painters and sculptors.
I read an excerpt from The Redoubt. If you weren’t able to make Author Night you can hear the same excerpt, this time read by Angela B. Chrysler, herself a popular author.
Now, about that tee-shirt with FOX in huge letters surmounted by a crown. It’s so perfect you would think that I had it custom-made but no. That shirt is about 20 years old, made by Fox BMX Racing. I’m not and never was a motocross racer. The only finish line I ever race for is during National Novel Writing Month marathons. I did however decades ago receive a catalog of Fox gear in the mail. I suspect that a genius in their Marketing department said, “Let’s mail a catalog to everyone with the name Fox. I’ll bet a few of them will buy something just for grins.” And sure enough, my late husband Mike Byrnes bought one of everything. To this day I still have a drawer full of color tee-shirts emblazoned with my name. How cool is that?
