INTERNATIONAL CHRISTIAN RETAIL SHOW! What a blast!

Cecil and I just returned from the retail show in Denver -- not because we are retailers, but because I'm an author and my publicist scheduled me for some TV media appointments and interviews...and I signed copies of Maggie Rose, my newest release. These conventions are such a blast because you run into so many exciting people! I think I mentioned earlier that Cecil and I found ourselves sitting next to Phil Stacey (former American Idol finalist) in the hotel lobby and wound up having a nice chat with him. That evening he took part in a concert with several other current Christian singers. Very fun and inspiring event.

Here's a pic someone took of me with two of my author friends, Mary Connealy, Christy Award winner finalist (see her medal?), on my right, and Kim Vogel Sawyer on my left. I am so honored, humbled, and blessed to have the opportunity to meet such wonderful people. Indeed God is good and gracious.

I LOVE YOU ALL!
