What a weekend! I just returned from an incredibly inspiring author retreat that was hosted by my publisher, She Writes Press, and BookSparks. It was an opportunity to connect with wonderful women writers, all with amazing stories to share with the world.

Great food, a stunning location, and non-stop networking with smart, talented folks made for a fantastic event. One highlight was the keynote speech delivered by the brilliant author Jesmyn Ward, national book award winner for Sing Unburied Sing. I am loving the book. The next morning, Jesmyn taught a writing workshop that was thought-provoking.

Also unforgettable was the final evening, when each of us read from our work around a campfire. So much love and support! Rock on She Writes Press.
