    Have a wonderful time, Janice! 😀 It sounds like a great occasion to meet fellow writers and always inspiring – wish I could stop by! Wow, I’m impressed with your 20 books … that is brilliant. I read your ‘Hunting Mariah’ … blimey, that is a book I won’t forget. So intense, harrowing in parts, unputdownable! Very well written and constructed.
