Last Saturday, when I was working the Atlanta Writers Club booth at the Decatur Book Festival, a woman stopped by and asked if she could take my picture. “Sure,” I said, and held up an AWC brochure.
Mary Gilmartin, the one taking the picture, had invited me a number of months ago to speak to her writers group. I did, and we had a great discussion. It was good to see her again.
Yesterday, she sent me a link to her blog post about the book festival. The following paragraph was just one of many describing the wonders of that Labor Day weekend event. I was honored to have been a part of it, although I didn't see a single honey bee the entire day...
I first discovered Fran Stewart when she hosted a one-year project in 2009 on Mystery Matters. Every Friday morning she would interview a mystery writer. As an author herself, Fran has written many books. The first line of Chapter 1 in her first mystery book “Orange as Marmalade” is one of my favorites: “There had definitely not been a body on the second floor landing when I had run upstairs to the attic earlier in the evening.” -- Mary Gilmartin
Thanks for the plug, Mary!
It was a fun, exhausting event. The fact that the temp hovered around 90 degrees the whole time contributed to the exhausting part. Thank goodness for the tent.
