FEBRUARY 27 FESTIVAL
I'll be at the Book 'Em North Carolina writers' conference and book festival (http://www.bookemnc.org) Saturday February 27 with copies of my five novels. I went last year and it was a great opportunity to meet readers as well as other writers and publishers.
|Visitors came from North and South Carolina.|

At 10:00 AM I'll be in the Green Room to talk about Historical Fiction. There are conflicting views about how writers should approach the genre. Should the setting and background be authentic? Some writers today take liberties with established facts regarding events, places, and persons, which arouses concern for other writers who believe we have a duty to keep to the record. It's a controversial subject and one I look forward to discussing with an audience.
Founder and chairperson of Book 'em North Carolina is Trish Terrell, author of 18 novels, among them the mystery series Black Swamp.

I'm looking forward to the Deckle Edge book festival this weekend in Columbia (http://deckleedgesc.org/
