Fall Book Festivals

Fall is in full swing in Minnesota

That means it’s the season for two of my favorite fall book festivals.

A great day in Hopkins

Book sales for Saturday’s Mainstreet Day were excellent and the weather cooperated . . . eventually. It was a bit chilly all morning. But once the sun came out, it was a glorious early fall day. I met lots of friendly, interesting readers and customers. Also got to see and chat with four of the family–Mom, Stepdad, Brother, and Sister-in-Law. Always great to see them and get their emotional support.

One more thing

I’m thrilled and humbled to share with you that I hit the 100 mark for total online book reviews and ratings for my first two books, Straight River and Castle Danger. It’s a special milestone because many books only receive a handful of reviews or ratings. Thanks to all readers who took the time and made the effort to post a review or rating.


I hope to see you all in Mankato this Saturday from 9:30 am to 3:00 pm.
