A few months ago Sheila Butterworth, the owner of The Bookworm in Santa Maria, introduced me to the four other authors who had come into the store. Together we enthusiastically created, planned, refined and lead a book reading for the grand opening of the bookstore. We found we have things in common: we took up writing later in our careers, we write from our hearts and imaginations, and we have aspirations to make a difference with our writing.
I am confident that your readers will be interested in hearing about Spence’s experiences growing up during the Depression, how three authors collaborated in a book, what inspired me to write The Blue Flame, The Emerald Dagger, and The Silver Angel. How Mike combines poetry and painting, and how writing enriches our lives. I have collected background material about each book and each author, a photo of the group, and the books themselves. I would be happy to share these with you as well as contact information for each of the authors. Perhaps we can all come into the newsroom at the same time for a interview.
I look forward to speaking with you soon
