I have been asked to be on a panel for an event hosted by Engage Kansas Monday night in Hutchinson. The topic will be broadband access in Kansas and how millions of dollars coming to the state should be spent to improve internet service in the Sunflower State.
...things don't turn out the way you hoped. I have had to pause work on the audiobook version of FALLEN TREES because work demands for one of my voice talents made their continued involvement untenable.
I received an unexpected treat the other day when a friend who is an instructor at Wichita State University called to say she was telling her students about an audio-to-text program I had recommended to her that they could use while working on their memoirs.
I haven’t gotten much work on my novels done over the past few months, but I have a good reason: I have been busy converting a spare bedroom into a full home office. My old setup was simply too limited, with furniture that was not designed for laptops or ergonomic keyboards.
A recent review on Goodreads made me smile.
She called FALLEN TREES “an ideal book to spend an autumn afternoon,” which I consider high praise. I’ve told friends I consider it to be a good summer beach read, and you could say she describes the autumn equivalent.
I am in the process of replacing the large, outdated desk in my home office and came across this printout as I was emptying drawers and shelves recently. It’s the final draft of INTO THE DEEP, the book I wrote about the flash flood on the Kansas Turnpike in 2003 with the man whose family perished in that tragedy.
I had the pleasure of listening to three Wichita authors discuss their books at a recent Wichita Professional Communicators luncheon. The writing journeys of other authors always interest me to see how they compare to mine.
Temperatures are cooling down, leaves are starting to turn, jackets and long-sleeved shirts are being pulled out of the closet…
Autumn is definitely in the air.
Local Author Day was nearing its conclusion when I noticed a young woman speaking with the author seated at the table next to mine at the Advanced Learning Library in downtown Wichita.
