I was invited to speak about Duels & Deception at the NS Children's Literature Roundtable New Book Bash on May 6th, 2017 along with many other distinguished authors such as Wade Albert White and Theresa Meuse.
Though I still find public speaking a tad difficult (VERY!), I was able to look up from my paper a few times, meet people's eyes and even laugh! Best of all, I was one of the first to talk so I could spend most of the evening enjoying the presentation of other authors and illustrators.
A meet and greet followed, with sweets and good company. I signed a few books, bought a few books and fan-girled a tiny bit. A good time was had by all.
