"I don’t change the facts to enhance the drama. I think of it the other way round, the drama has got to fit the facts,
and it’s your job as a writer to find the shape in real life."
Hilary Mantel

My Return to the Stage--as Author, not Actress

 An event that was months in the planning, took place last evening at a historic downtown theatre. Laura Knoy of NH Public Radio and NPR interviewed me and three other local authors--Paul Brogan (memoir, biography, myster), Virginia Macgregor/Nina Monroe (contemporary fiction, young adult, historical), and Mark Okrant (mystery, history). With over two hundred people in attendance, it was the venue's largest crowd since the onset of the pandemic--amazing support by the community. 

After the interview, which included two question-and-answer segments, there was a booksigning in the lobby, sponsored and supplied by our local independent Gibson's Bookstore--where anyone can order personally autographed copies of my titles.

It was a wonderful evening, and a great joy to spend time with such talented and inspiring friends.
