I'm A Guest of Honor?!?!

Next Wednesday, I am the guest of honor at a writer's convention in New Oxford, Pennsylvania where I will be announcing the release of The Seven Sisters sometime this year and speaking on the craft of writing.

There are two little problems.

The average age will be around 9.

And I have to share the guest of honor spot.

With a cat.

A beautiful Himalayan to be exact.

How the mighty have fallen.

Actually, the cat is cool.

He's a therapeutic animal trained to act interested when kids who are problem readers read to him. And he's *very* effective and along with three dogs also involved in the program, he has helped turn around a lot of problem readers because what kid wouldn't want to read a story to a beautiful animal that actually appears to hang on every word you say?

So, even though I'm upstaged, I support the program 100% and I'll try not to act jealous when he gets more requests for autographs.

Haha, my cat is interested she hears people read out loud. But she acts more... concerned... about the person reading than anything. She'll come over and stare at you, purring and meowing with kindof a worried tone. She's a real distraction. ;P
