It's a discussion of my book at the Walden University plenary session in Orlando, Florida. (I don't know why I keep looking at the papers in my hand. They don't contain the answers to the questions. Bad habit!)

Metavivor Authors' Luncheon

A week ago, I had the pleasure and honor to participate in an annual Authors' Luncheon in Annapolis, Maryland. It was sponsored by Metavivor, a wonderful organization which advocates for research funding for MBC -- metastatic breast cancer, a terminal illness. With some ninety persons, many of them cancer survivors, in the audience, seven authors discussed their books, the art of writing, the publishing industry, etc. The attendees purchased the authors' books, with a portion of the sales going to Metavivor, and the authors held a signing session.

Pictured above with me is Stephanie Verni, a professor at Stephenson University and author of the novel, Beneath the Mimosa Tree. The other writers on the panel with us were Laura Kaye (moderator), Stacey Bolin, Janie Suss, Sharon Solomon, and Martha Vincek.

Authors' luncheon in Annapolis

On Saturday, September 15, 11:00 am – 2:30 pm, at the Doubletree Hotel on Holiday Court, off Riva Road, in Annapolis, Maryland:
I’ll be privileged to participate in an Authors’ Luncheon, sponsored by a wonderful organization – METAvivor – devoted to funding research in the field of metastatic breast cancer. This is the Annapolis group’s third such annual event, featuring authors in the region. The other authors participating will be:
Stacey Bolin
Laura Kaye
Sharon Solomon
Janie Suss
Stephanie Vernie
Martha Vincek

The authors’ books will be available for sale and signing, beginning at 11 am. Each author will then sit at a table with guests during a luncheon and will chat with them about his/her book(s). The luncheon will be followed by a panel discussion during which the authors will respond to a number of questions; Laura Kaye, local romance writer, will moderate. A silent auction will take place throughout the program.

Tickets cost $40, with proceeds of both ticket sales and portions of book sales going to metastatic breast cancer research. Registration is via the organization’s website:  If you’d like to indicate that there are friends with whom you’d like to sit, you may indicate so on the website.
