Upcoming Events & Happenings:


​Over the past decade, I've been to almost every U.S. state, numerous Canadian cities, and several European events for book events. I've hit a point of wanting to slow down. 2019 is blissfully empty.

That said, I want to complete my state list though, so if you are an event in Hawaii, Idaho, or Montana . . . odds are I'll say yes :)
