My mother-in-law, nephew and daughter joined on a trip to Tucson last weekend for the Tucson Festival of Books! It was such a spirited event, and I felt so honored to be there as a speaker and panelist. I went on behalf of Nuestras Raices which is a program of the Pima County Public Library. The crowd attendance was well over 100,000, and everyone was hungry for reading as well as writing. In between my sessions I was able to sit in on some workshops and came home motivated to jump back to work on my next novel!
