Local Wichita, KS authors

Celebrating Local Writing

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.

The books written by Denise Neil, Joe Stumpe and Vanessa Whiteside are all quite different from mine, focusing on the food and history of Wichita, but I smiled at how many similarities in the journey remained.

As an unexpected bonus, when organizers spotted me in the crowd, they asked me to discuss my two books. I didn’t have any copies with me because I hadn’t expected to speak. I encouraged them to swing by Watermark to get my novel if they were interested.
