Ann Gabhardt and I at a previous Southern Kentucky Bookfest. She writes the BEST books!

I just came in from walking Thistle on a COLD and BLUSTERY day. Ick. I love getting out for walks but not when the temperature is below freezing and the wind is standing my hair on wind.

Which has me thinking about spring . . . Of course, I also have some great book events coming up this spring so that’s one more reason to look forward to turning the calendar pages (I know Mom–don’t wish my life away!)

Here’s a listing of some upcoming events–hope I might see you at one of them!

February 21-23, 2020 – Asheville Christian Writers Conference at Ridgecrest Conference Center in Ridgecrest, NC. Okay, so February isn’t quite spring, but I’m pretending. I’m also teaching classes about pitches and queries in the morning and writing your proposal in the afternoon.

March 8, 2020 – Mills River Presbyterian Church Book Club – Mills River, NC at 12:15 p.m. – Join me for a lesson in forgiveness from Miracle in a Dry Season. I’m excited to be sharing with this great group of ladies and I know they’d welcome you to their church!

March 20-21, 2020 – Southern Kentucky Bookfest – The Knicely Conference Center (2355 Nashville Rd.) in Bowling Green, Kentucky. On Saturday I get to be on a panel with Ann Gabhart, Jolina Petersheim, and Kristy Cambron at 1 p.m.–yippee! Love these ladies!

May 15-17, 2020 – John C. Campbell Folk School – Creative Writing: Setting as Character – Join me for a weekend intensive about writing strong settings in fiction at this beautiful folk school in Brasstown, NC.

So how about you–what are you looking forward to this spring?
