These Hands Touched George R. R. Martin

OK, so I’m name dropping! I’ll admit it. It wasn’t easy getting next to one of the biggest names in the business, so it was pretty exciting when I was able to say “hello” to George R. R. Martin while at Thrillerfest in New York. The hand on the left touched his shoulder, and the one on the right shook his hand. What fun it was to meet him!

Other Thrillerfest Fun

While I was in New York, I had lunch with my Penguin Random House editor Shauna Summers, and my publisher Gina Wachtel. I also got together with my good friend, Meg Gardiner. I just finished reading her newest UNSUB novel, INTO THE BLACK NOWHERE, which is a taut thriller. No wonder the UNSUB books are being turned into a new series on CBS!

I Love the Theatre

While I was in London I saw The King and I, an absolutely wonderful romance.  I then saw four plays in New York, of which Anastasia, another exceptional romance, was my favorite.
