I had an awesome couple of days with Niki filled with conversation (and lots of interesting information about indie writers and marketing). We toured Valley Forge and I took about a million pics.
From there, I tripped on over to Reading and spent two days with Amber and her wonderful family (husband Dante, son Kody, and precious doggos). They took me to a Japanese pagoda…in the middle of PA. I was amazed and also…a little confused with the why of it all. We also walked the gorgeous grounds of a museum (tons more photos). We met up with a new reader named Ashley (she works with Amber) and her boyfriend Zach. There was a lot of laughter!
This was the state when I realized the photos might get a *little* out of hand. LOL – I can’t possibly share them all.
The fifth state on my fabulous writing road trip was VIRGINIA!
My first stop was with the beautiful Maria, her husband Gary, as well as their son and his family (their granddaughter was just awesome). They took me to visit the Norfolk Naval Base. It was my first time being on a real military base and since I write a lot of military and former military characters…I so appreciated the opportunity. Their stories kept me riveted the entire time.
We had great conversations, ate good food, and I loved my time with them.
From there, I drove over to have dinner with Gayle. I was just blown away by how lovely she was and adored her stories about her kids (who need to go into stories).

The third state on my writing road trip was SOUTH CAROLINA!
I stopped for coffee with an old and dear friend named Nic O’Demus…we didn’t get a photo for reasons. I tripped on down the road to spend time with Elizabeth (Lizzy), her husband Jim, and their best friend Chris. They were a riot!
From there, I headed to my darling Cynthia and spent a couple of days talking non-stop with her and her sweetheart of an adult son, Kellen.

This is the new site created after my website of over a decade was hacked and destroyed. Please pardon the appearance while I get my feet under me again.
In the meantime, I hope you enjoy the snippets of my recent three-month writing road trip across the country (and eastern Canada). It was magical.
