The cosmic convergence of “The Fearless Girl” and “Fearless Broads.”
I will be at LunaCon this year, along with several other members of Broad Universe. We’ll be doing our Rapid Fire Reading on Saturday night, followed by a book signing.
I’ll be in the dealer’s room Saturday and Sunday, along with April Grey and Amy Grech, featuring a variety of urban fantasy, paranormal romance, and horror titles.
