Last week I was at the Pikes Peak Writers Conference in Colorado Springs where I taught a class on Personification and Metaphor. To be able to do that was a dream come true. Two people told me that it was their favorite workshop of the entire conference. What an honor! I was so touched. I love helping other writers and I’m a big believer of paying it forward. Also, while I was there, I overheard some say they wanted to read The Covered Deep. After so many years of dreaming about it, hearing someone say that is all kinds of bliss. I am so excited to share Bianca and Paul’s story with all of you! Five months and counting!
