MC and I had a wonderful time at the Southwest Florida Reading Festival this afternoon in Ft Myers.  My dear friend,  Kristy Woodson Harvey,  was one of the featured speakers!  When I found out she was going to be there we knew we couldn't miss the opportunity to see her again!
As a bonus we got to meet her two special "Wills"!!!!

At 2:00 she was on stage reading a passage from Dear Carolina.  Then there was an opportunity for the audience to ask questions.  Yes I did ask one!  I asked  if she worked from the ending of the story back to the beginning.....Kristy explained that it has worked both ways.  Sometimes she starts the story with the ending in her head and then at other times, the characters just take on a life of their own as she writes!

Kristy's next book, Lies and Other Acts of Love, will be released next month.  I'm hoping when they go on tour, they will come back our way!!!

Talking with her before the presentation, Kristy revealed that she's working on book 3!!!  I don't know how she does it all!

It was a great day and a wonderful break in our preparing for our move...  signing the papers on Monday afternoon.   Monday we will have the car  packed with  our first, of numerous trips,  to carry what we can  from the apartment.  The movers will do the heavy work next Friday.

The next time you hear from me I will be showing you how MC and I preformed the miracle of going from 2200 sq ft to 700 sq ft!!!!

Till then


  1. That must of been fun..shes so talented and so pretty!

  2. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Patty for coming to see me! That was the BEST part of the whole entire weekend. I loved getting to see you and MC, and I was just so flattered that you came for me. It was such a great day. I hope the move goes amazingly well and that I get to see you again soon. Your new town is beautiful and I know your home will be as well! Thanks for all of your love and support. It means the world to me! Much, much love and big hugs! Kristy

  3. I always look forward to when you post mostly to see how you and MC are doing. It's so inspiring that a long time married couple still do interesting activities together. I'm looking forward to your new living quarters as whatever you do is fascinating. All my best to the both of you.
