I'm sitting in a rocking chair, in a cabin in Idyllwild (that's California, elevation 6800 ft), with full-on WiFi, and I got a great email from a friend. I met Rick Ochocki and his lovely wife, Linda, at the Southern California Writers Conference a year or so back. We all immediately took a liking to one another and have kept in touch with emails, always look each other up at the conferences, etc. Back in November, I went up to Bakersfield for an author's festival. Rick and Linda live there and were absolutely gracious hosts, taking me out for a late lunch before seeing me safely on the road.
So yesterday I got an email from Rick, saying that he and Linda were in Scottsdale, Arizona recently and stopped in at the Poisoned Pen Bookstore. Guess who's book was on the display table?
Yeah, that would be mine. Insert wild applause here.
