At the Sac State Fair This Weekend!


I’ll be at the Sacramento State Fair this weekend signing copies of Between Two Fires! If you’re in Northern California, stop on by. Even if not to see me, the corn dogs and rides are fun too;)

It’s my first year doing a book signing at a state fair, although I’ve enjoyed attending the fair for years. It’ll be interesting to see how it goes, and there should also be other authors there as well. The best part is, I’ll be in an AC building, no joke in 100+ degree weather.

I’ll also plan to be there the following Saturday as well. It should be lots of fun! Hope to see some of you there!

Kids in the Garden


We had a great 4th of July this year, and have the garden going too. What with the drought being long over in California, it’s nice to be growing tomatoes, pumpkins, and other goodies this year in the yard. I really enjoy the nice summer weather and the promise of fresh produce as the months go by.

Of course, I’m finding that kids in the garden is a delightful, if somewhat mixed blessing. They love to help out in the dirt, but sometimes they’re as much a hazard to the plants as they are to themselves. But then again, it’s all part of the fun and chaos, I suppose.

We lit fireworks in the street afterward with some friends in the neighborhood. The kids really enjoyed it. Can you guess at what point some of the fireworks went off when I wasn’t expecting it?  :)
