I'm going to Chicago today!
As you longtime readers know, I have a bit of a love connection with the Midwest. I'm fascinated by the inhabitants of this region--somehow, they manage to exhibit the warm friendliness of the South in the midst of winter weather that's far worse than here New England...If that isn't a sign of miracles, I don't know what is.
I'll be attending a women's conference where my friend Grace will be one of the keynote speakers. And I just found out that I'll be back in Chicago in June, as one of the featured authors at the Printers Row Book Fair. By July, I'll be so friendly that I'll need a whole other blog to contain it :)
In honor of my upcoming Midwestern adventures, I'd like to do a little bragging about one of my writing friends who hales from that region. Some of you know her as Steph, soon-to-be published author, awesome champion of fellow writers, and the glue person for our online writing network. Others know her as Manic Mommy, blogger extraordinaire. What you might not know is that she now has her own featured segment on the fabulous website, Betty Confidential, where she fields questions about all kinds of things with her usual combination of wisdom and wit. I'd put your beverage down before clicking over :)
I'm off to the windy city!
