Come see me–would love to meet you! Going to be at Scenic Regional Library this Thursday evening, Sept. 12, at 7 p.m. in Union to introduce area readers to a plethora of new books pubbing in the fall. You’ll be seeing many of these books in upcoming “Novel Ideas” columns in The Missourian. Great stuff to give you a heads-up on.

Also will be debuting my new kids’s book this Saturday, September 14th, at 10 a.m. at Washington Public Library. Be among the first to get a look-see at “Patriotic Pals, Tails of Civil War Dogs,” with art by St. Louis illustrator Richard Bernal. The book is about a sensible Border collie and his poodle pal Tilly. The unlikely duo take a road trip to search out real and legendary canines from the Civil War. And that’s no woof!
