No matter what else is going on in the world, the library is still the beating heart of a community. My Saturday event at Lacey Timberland Regional Library was a perfect example. We had a room full of people from all walks of life, gathered to discuss the journey of a novel from inspiration to publication.
The highlight for me was this:

It’s fitting that my booksigning for Family Tree was all about family. Pictured above are my stepson Carter and my granddaughter Clara. My in-laws were in the audience. Family is my motivation and my reward for everything. That’s a spoiler for the talk, by the way.
Special thanks to Linda a Orca Books, the event bookseller.
Extra-sweet thanks to my publisher for the maple-licious treats. The gift basket winner was a birthday girl!
And thanks to readers everywhere for today–I woke up to the news that Family Tree is the #2 bestselling paperback in the country, #6 overall in adult fiction.
More events here. Join me!
