My First Convention

This past weekend I was lucky enough to attend my first gaming convention, the Origins Convention in Columbus Ohio.  I was invited to go and meet a couple of fellow Beau Coup authors, Curtiss Robinson who writes Fantasy Adventure and Andrea Perno who writes Science Fiction. Also there signing books was a new science fiction author to me, Micah Cox. It was so fantastic getting to meet them all. They are amazing writers and just as amazing friends.  

My best friend was able to go with me and we had a blast looking around at everything.  We saw some cool games, amazing artwork, and some very creative costumes.  I had never attended anything like this before and wasn't sure if I would like it but it turned out to be a blast and I would certainly go back again. 

The high-point of the trip for me was actually getting to meet the other authors.  We are a tight group at Beau Coup but actually getting to see and talk to each other face to face was a wonderful experience.  If you get a chance, you definitely need to check out Curtiss Robinson's Heroes of Dae'Run series and Andrea Perno's debut book The Last Drop both out on Amazon. 

It is time for me to head back into my illustrating cave (it's just like a writer's cave lol) and continue work on my third book.  Catch ya soon!

Summer Break

Summer break is almost here and I can't wait to finally have some time to devote to my third book. Woohoo!   I am using some of the same characters from Imagination Destination and creating a few new ones.   My fingers have been itching to get a hold of my drawing pen and tablet. 

I am also looking forward to being able to relax and maybe even go on a vacation.  A girl needs some inspiration, right?   Where would you choose to go on a dream vacation?  A beautiful white sand beach along the gorgeous blue green color of the sea , a scenic mountain hideaway or do you like the thrill of amusement rides?  I like all of those places.  I've never been to the beach though.  Never even seen the ocean!  A shock , huh?  Maybe this will be the year I go.  I just want to be able to get away, relax, and let my mind unwind for a few days and let the creative juices start flowing. 

I love to paint beach scenes just because of the brilliant ocean colors.  I painted an ocean scene for my interactive book World of Color.  You can even double click on the illustration in the book to reveal a real ocean rainbow scene.

Here's to the start of a wonderful summer vacation.  Come chat with me on my Facebook page at  Maybe you can recommend the perfect vacation destination.
