Some Pictures from the Launch at Quail Ridge Books

Thanks to everyone who joined me last night at Quail Ridge Books! It was so much fun for me. Here are some of the pictures John took.

I’m in love with the cake!




The three women in the shot below are my neighbors, Amy, Kathy W. and Kathy C. (Kathy W. is also my new research assistant and she is amazing!)









And here are Terri and Debra, two of my Facebook friends who’ve become real-life friends. They traveled from Charlotte to be there and I was so touched by that!

Last but definitely not least, that’s me with QRB owner Nancy Olson and QRB Jack of all trades, Tim. I owe so much to Nancy. She took me under her wing when I first moved to Raleigh and helped me become part of the most amazing and supportive writing community you could imagine.



Next stop is Wilmington at 6:30 Monday night, May 7th at the Mayfaire Barnes and Noble. I hope to see some of you there!
