Give up?

We are all featured authors at the Gaithersburg Book Festival this Saturday (May 15)!

I know, right?

The festival is an all-day affair, featuring many well-known local writers (and me, too). There will be workshops, seminars, presentations, signings, poetry readings, music, food, fun, and books, books, books!

Admission is free!

My presentation begins at 10:00 a.m. in the Dashiell Hammett Pavilion. After I finish, stick around to hear Meredith Cole, author of the Agatha-nominated POSED FOR MURDER and the newly-released DEAD IN THE WATER, speak at 11:00 a.m. in the same pavilion.

For all the details, including directions and parking info, visit the Gaithersburg Book Festival website.

HOPE TO SEE YOU AT THE FESTIVAL ON SATURDAY!
