Well, the Words & Wine Benefit was lovely. Despite the torrential downpour, ominous sky, and tornado warnings, “people did come, Ray.” I always enjoy myself; chatting with people always makes my night. Meeting Governor Ehrlich, chatting with Rafael Alvarez, and talking books, Ft. Knox, Kentucky, and the professional writing program at Towson University with people were the highlights. There were 20 of us authors mingling with folks and each other. I love when people ask me about my book. So much fun to talk about it! I hope we helped the Friends of the Catonsville Library raise some money, and I look forward to going back next year.
Tomorrow, the Catonsville Library will host its annual event, Words & Wine. More than 20 authors will be in attendance sharing their work and talking with folks. Former Maryland Governor Bob Ehrlich has just been added, and will be signing his new book. Catering is provided by The Wine Bin in historic Ellicott City. I’m very excited to be there and hope to see some familiar faces for a great night out at this worthwhile benefit. I’ll have copies of my first novel, “Beneath the Mimosa Tree” on hand.
