"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

Wednesday is Library Day!

Don't forget, if you live in the Orange County area, to come by the La Habra Public Library at 2:30 p.m. tomorrow, Wednesday, December 30th. I will be there, talking about, "Write What You Know - Then Change It." It's a fun little exercise, where you'll learn many interesting things, like:

1. Why did I use Placentia as the setting of my novel?
2. What other setting did I use for another book I wrote?
3. What other authors have used "write what you know" to their benefit?
4. Can I stay on-topic in a room full of people?

Remember - tomorrow at 2:30 p.m. I'll also have copies of Freezer Burn on hand to autograph and sell.
