Carolyn, thanks for blogging with the Femmes! I know what you mean; there's a special kind of...something that happens to us when we get together to talk books. It lasts far longer than the event.

Reading can change a person's life, I believe. Thank you, Dana.


I was one of those attendees at DGW. It gave readers and writers an opportunity to rub elbows with a wide assortment of talent. I feel like I have made life long friends. I am a reader, not a writer. And to have the opportunity to get a peek inside the writing process was fascinating. Thank you Carolyn!

Welcome to the Femmes, Carolyn.
I wonder how many of those non-readers grew up with no one to read to them -- a parent, a grandparent or aunt? I was lucky enough to have all those people read stories to me. I think it sparked a life-long love of reading.

Thank you, Carole. DG Weekend was a total blast. I've been caught on film doing a lot of things I shouldn't! But it was a writers' conference--bad conduct is expected. And yes, Elaine. My parents and grandmother read to us, told us stories, recited poetry, and acted out skits. My brain was stimulated, and I will always be grateful to my folks for that.


Carole, I could not have said it better! I completely agree! Carolyn, you write such wonderful books with characters we love because they are so much like you...funny, warm, genuine, loyal and kind.

DGW was incredible! To meet and spend time with "old friends" I'd never actually met before and the ton of new friends I made was so much fun. And, knowing that all of these friends have one thing in common: the love of the written word. Fantastic!
