You didn't know I was gone? Well, I was. I've been in Washington, in the Tri-Cities of Pasco, Kennewick, and Richland, on the Columbia River. I was one of twelve(!) authors presenting to 650(!) teens at the Cavalcade of Authors.
It was an amazing experience, and probably the most well-organized events I've ever experienced. The Cavalcade, founded by the redoubtable Michelle Lane and co-chaired by Leslie Olds, has been going and growing for several years now, and this was the biggest one yet. Next year, I am told, it'll be even bigger!
It was wonderful meeting all the other authors—
