It's been a busy month, with several assignments, regular columns, and volunteer duties cluttering my calendar. Between times, we've had CRAZY weather -- nearly 80-degree temps in February alternating with ice storms, 8-12 inches of snow (in N. Texas?!) followed by many inches of rain after several years of drought.
The dog loves the snow, loves the rain, heck, he loves any excuse to get messy!
The OWFI Writers Conference this May 1-3 looms. After a year of work, I'm anxious to have the whole thing underway yet a bit nervous as well. Throwing a party of this magnitude ain't for the faint of heart, and there's always concern that the guests will actually come and appreciate the effort. There's still time to register--www.owfi.org--come meet JA Jance, and many other authors, schmooze with editors and agents (maybe they'll want to buy your next project!), and sign/sell your books at the autograph party.
For those of a furry purr-suasion, I've a few more radio shows posted at www.petliferadio.com -- simply click on the Pet Peeves logo and browse the offerings. Currently you'll find an interview with Dr. Steve Hansen of the ASPCA's poison prevention hotline, as well as another show featuring Dr. Susan Little and the Winn Feline Foundation. I'll post a note when a very controversial upcoming show on cat declaw is available.
