Hope to See You the San Diego Writers Festival 2020!

I’m delighted to join The San Diego Book Awards Association and fellow authors at The San Diego Writers Festival 2020 on April 4th at the Coronado Public Library. I’ll be signing copies of Supportive Accountability.

This year’s Festival features “live performances, writing workshops, agent pitch sessions, literary panels with an impressive array of genres, comic-book writing, food writers (and tasting), kids-and teen-programming, publishing experts, and so much more.”

The Festivals’ headlining keynote speaker is Scott Gimple, head writer of the award-winning series The Walking Dead. He’ll talk about screenwriting and will share about his success.

Join the excitement.  Visit The San Diego Writers Festival’s webpage.
