March 23, 2015: On Monday, March 30th actress and author Mary Lou Quinlan will be at the University of Dayton performing her award-winning one-woman show THE GOD BOX, based on her best seller of the same title. This performance is a fundraiser for the amazing Erma Bombeck Writers’ Workshop. After Monday’s show, I am honored to be joining Mary Lou along with other local writers, Mary Jo McCarty, Sharon Short, and Joanne Huist Smith for a talkback called “Writing Your Heart Out.” Tickets are only $15! Speaking of theatre, I’m tickled pink to report that I’ll be returning to the stage myself in Criminal Hearts at The Dayton Theatre Guild. I’d love it if you might come see it. It opens April 17th. You can get all the details on dates, show times, and tickets here. When not in rehearsal, I’m writing away, closing in on a final revision of this novel…and waiting for tonight’s snow flurries to pass before I plant my pansies. Happy Spring, everyone!
