"The notion that such persons are gay of heart and carefree is curiously untrue. They lead, as a matter of fact, an existence of jumpiness and apprehension. They sit on the edge of the chair of Literature. In the house of Life they have the feeling that they have never taken off their overcoats."
- James Thurber, My Life and Hard Times

A babbling brook of news

Too bad my name's not Brooke. That'd make it a really funny post title.

I'm still recovering from a fabulous weekend at the Southern California Writer's Conference. I spent three days discussing writing and marketing with fun and earnest people from all over. After each day's hard work, I sat at the makeshift bar of the Crowne Plaza Hanalei on San Diego's Hotel Circle, nursing a glass of wine and laughing my tushie off at the antics of the same fun and earnest people.

There's more to the debrief, but my eyes, to quote my grandmother, feel like "two pee-holes in a snowbank" and I can't quite make the right words come out of my brain.

In the meantime, the interview I did with Julie Preble of Horse and Rider Magazine is up and at 'em. If you want a chance to win Snoopy's book, go here. There's also a Q and A video of me on YouTube. Check it out.

I'll be back tomorrow or Thursday to report more. After I've slept.
