It was a great experience. I was able to meet and listen to other Texas authors and that was fun.
My longtime friend (and loyal Deputy Ricos fan), Keith Godwin of San Antonio, attended and helped in various ways with her trademark great humor. I was surprised and honored to be visited by other readers of my books as well. Many thanks to Alexa Walker for coming and to Rosa and Curtis Toews. The biggest surprise of all was to see my friends Julie and Tim McKenna! They came all the way from Terlingua (an 8-hour drive). They brought Julie’s mother, Fran Conrad, who is also a Deputy Ricos fan. The presence of your smiling faces made the event more pleasant and less terrifying. Thank you.
I could not have done anything without my great friend Lynda Douglas. She helped with everything from loading books into my truck to being my navigational officer in that crazy Austin traffic. She made the trip less long and much more fun than it would’ve been without her. Thank you, Lynda.
Heartfelt thanks to Alan Bourgeois of the Texas Association of Authors for his hard work on behalf of Texas authors and to my loyal and loving readers who enrich my life every day.
