I have a few more events coming up and I’m excited about them because it gets me out from behind the keyboard. I read recently about how a writer is a recluse addicted to hot drinks … that sounds like me to a tea … I mean T. Anyhow, maybe I will see you at one of these events in the weeks and months ahead. I certainly hope so!
July 9-12 ThrillerFest in NYC. I’m on the Friday morning historical fiction roundtable with some pretty amazing thriller writers, including Steve Berry, David Morrell, Anne Perry, Kay Kendall, Jerry Americ, Ann Parker, Anne Cleeland, and Francine Mathews. I am busy reading all of their newest books and I am in awe!
July 21 6:30 pm “Heroes and Villains of 1812” talk at the North East Library, North East, MD. Surprisingly, not all the villains were Redcoats. I’ll be sharing stories from this “Forgotten War” on Chesapeake Bay.
July 25 4 pm Book signing at Browseabout Books, Rehoboth Avenue, Rehoboth Beach. Thank you to Browseabout for featuring “Beach Bodies.” If you are at the beach this summer, a visit to Browseabout and a slice of Grotto’s pizza are mandatory.
Commemoration of the sinking of the Levin J. Marvel. I will be talking about Great Storms of the Chesapeake when the Bayside History Museum presents a program with displays and exhibits commemorating “The 60th Anniversary of the Sinking of the Marvel” on August 12, 2015, 7:00 pm-9:00 pm at the North Beach Volunteer Fire Department Bay View Hall located at 8536 Bayside Road, Chesapeake Beach, MD. 20732.

August 22 10 am Front Porch Book Signing at the Old Gray Mare, Bohemia Avenue, in historic Chesapeake City. This is a big day in town because the annual car show will fill the streets. I’ll be on the front porch that day for as long as they let me hang around!
International Association of Business Communication, Seattle, October 2015 I’ll be delivering a paper on General Eisenhower’s D Day speech, a powerful example of rhetoric and leadership. Oh, and the Seattle area is wonderful to visit!
