Meeting Tess Gerritsen

Forgive my silence the last two weeks. We were getting my 17-year-old daughter, Mary, ready to leave for a 6-week internship with in CA, and then summer theatre started (I'm the music director for the kid's show) and wow, here I am, already so busy I can hardly get any writing done! My goal is to finish Fairyeater before the Philly conference in August.

My illustrator friend, Kim, and I also took a trip to Assateague/Chincoteague Islands 2 weeks ago for research on a children's book idea we're working on. It was a great trip.

But the biggie was last night. Another writing friend, Debbie, and I went into Philadelphia to see a screening of Rizzoli and Isles, a new show coming on TNT July 12th at 10pm. It is based on characters from several books by Tess Gerritsen. Tess writes mostly thrillers, but she also wrote one of my favorite sci-fi novels, Gravity. I consider sci-fi a cousin to fantasy. :) We enjoyed appetizers and drinks before the show, got a free t-shirt and Tess did a Q&A and signed books. I took my copy of Gravity and found out it was her favorite book, too! How cool is that?

Here we are with Tess herself! She was warm, funny, interesting and personable. We enjoyed ourselves very much.

I'll get back to the fantasy world next week! Happy 4th of July! God bless America.
