Nancy, Just waving hello. We have so much overlap that it feels like we ought to have met somewhere along the way. I'm in Palo Alto, have participated at Squaw, and been one of the Litquake Bubble Lounge Women's Night authors several times. And I play poker with Jane.

If you’re looking for places to connect here, we’d love to have you join us in the Novelists (Struggling or Not) group. Hope you’re enjoying exploring SheWrites, and best of luck with your writing.
