We're missing you and your blog, Dave. We'll be glad to welcome you back. In the meantime, rest.

Scandal does not mean guilt. Situation seems a little tame by now.

scan·dal (skndl)
n.
1. A publicized incident that brings about disgrace or offends the moral sensibilities of society
2. A person, thing, or circumstance that causes or ought to cause disgrace or outrage.
3. Talk that is damaging to one's character; malicious gossip.
4.a widely publicized allegation or set of allegations that damages the reputation...

I am speaking to my first mother-daughter book club this Sunday. They are reading my debut STALKING SUSAN, winner of the Minnesota Book Award. I've spoken to many other book clubs, and they each have their own dynamics, but I'm really looking forward to this one.

My family attended the show and it was fabulous. Worth triple the ticket prices.

Last year I spoke at a book club that dressed up as characters from my novel STALKING SUSAN. Tonight I'm paying a return visit and they're dressing like my characters from MISSING MARK.

What do you know...I'm scheduled to speak at the Shakopee Women's Prison October 29. I look at it as my Johnny Cash moment. Thanks for the article, now I know what to expect.
