Lately I've been working with illustrator Marlaena Shannon to produce a children's picture book. The text is a poem I wrote some time ago about a witch who lives at Fairview and is allergic to cats. Marlaena has a way with cats, and you (and your kids) are going to love this book.

Held at the historic Frampton Plantation, the festival had a variety of artisans and writers but not enough visitors. I took advantage of my ten minutes with a microphone to rant about historical fiction. The event has been cancelled for 2016.
I loved the model trains, car show, and antique tractors at the Sparkleberry Country Fair, but our book tent was a bit quiet. Too quiet.
I was interviewed on G.W. Pomichter’s Hangin’ With Web Show. Since he was in Florida and I'm in South Carolina, we did the show using Skype, apparently a technical challenge. It's available on YouTube.
