Malice and More
I’ve been back in town for only a few days after a wonderful trip east.
First, I went to Malice Domestic, which, as always, was a fun event. I think the panel I was on, along with Betty Hechtman, really went well. I enjoyed it, at least. It was about the film industry and how we use it in our stories, and I had a great time explaining how OODLES OF POODLES centered around rescued poodles playing rescued poodles in a movie being filmed--and how I was able to mention that “No Animals Were Harmed” thanks to the American Humane Association.
Bethesda, Maryland, I
went to my old hometown of , for the Festival of
Mystery presented by the Mystery Lovers Bookshop in nearby Oakmont, and it,
too, was delightful. I also caught up
with some goings-on with my relatives in the ‘Burgh, including getting to know
my cousin’s 70-pound Goldendoodle lapdog. Pittsburgh,
Then on to
, where I got to see
my older son, d-i-l, and adorable grandson Elliott who’ll turn 1 year old in a
couple of weeks. I spent Mother’s Day
morning with them and with my husband, b-i-l and wonderful m-i-l, then traveled
home to Ohio in
time to have Mother’s Day dinner with my younger son! L.A.
The trip was nearly two weeks long, and although I missed my dogs I had a great time. But I have to say... it’s really good to be home now. Especially since I have a lot of writing to catch up on as well as panels and other events here in
How about you--did you enjoy the last two weeks as much as I did?
