My Trip To Apple Valley

Yesterday morning I got up bright and early to drive out to Apple Valley, which is in what is called the California high desert.  I was headed to there to give my motivational talk on being a writer in this wonderful digital age.  It was cold in LA Saturday morning.  Perfect weather for sleeping in.  Yet as much as I wanted to climb back into bed, I knew that by the time I got to Apple Valley I would be excited.  And I was. I love hanging with writers, and gave a talk that many said was inspiring and motivational.


A few young fans came out as well.  That made the trip even better.  I love meeting fans of my books.  What author wouldn't?  The room had a diverse crowd of writers and fans of all ages.

The members of the High Desert Branch of the California Writers Club were incredibly gracious.  This is the president, Freddi Gold:

After my talk, I signed a few books.

And after that, they took me to lunch.  I don't have any shots from lunch, but there were fifteen of us writers, so you know the conversation was lively.  Thanks Freddi and the members from the High Desert Branch of The California Writers Club for showing me such a fabulous time.  I hope you'll have me speak again.

These photos were all taken by club photographer, Anthony.  Thanks Anthony.
