Back in February my library director forwarded an email from someone about the Romance Writers of America (RWA) national conference which would be held in Dallas in July. For the past several years RWA has had a “librarians day" included in their conference-which, for a minimal fee you get to mingle with lots of romance writers and get free stuff. I sent my response and fee back immediately! And finally it was July 11th! What fun-to mingle to authors, librarians (near and far), and publishers. To hear Jayne Ann Krentz and Susan Elizabeth Phillips, Nora Roberts and to get loads of free books and stuff! We had lunch with Shirley Jump, a delightful humorous contemporary romance writer. Other writers that I heard during the day were Suzanne Brockmann and former Arlington resident Shana Abe, Jane Porter and Barbara Samuel, Sherrilyn Kenyon and Sandra Hill. What a great day-very informative and well organized. Did I say how much fun it was!?
