Earth Day and Hob-Nobbing with a Famous Author

May we nurture and cultivate our soil.
May we foster clear and clean skies.
May we conserve and  purify streams, rivers, lakes, and oceans.
May we support and sustain our plants.
May we defend and protect our animals.
May we care for our planet forever.

Whether you pick up a piece of trash, recycle an item, or turn off the water faucet while you brush your teeth, I hope everyone does at least one thing today in honor of Earth Day. And wouldn't it be awesome if each of us could do just one thing every day? I plan to try, and hope you will, too.

On another note, here's a follow-up report on my author/book library visit last week. Susanna Kearsley is a funny, gracious and fascinating woman. I loved listening to her speak about the research she does for her historical novels.

I'm now reading her latest book, The Desperate Fortune, and am totally engrossed by the story. It's on the way to becoming another best seller for her. Congrats to Susanna.

Here's a photo of me hanging out with a famous author. What a fun evening for a book lover!

Pat, isn't it a thrill to get inside the head of a best-selling author? I'm sure you had a wonderful time.

Always fun to talk to an author. Great picture of you both.

What fun! Will add The Desperate Fortune to my list. Happy belated Earth Day!

Pat--I agree with Linda. It's great to be able to spend time with an author and pick their brain.

I read somewhere that we use more water in a 3-minute shower than some people (in some countries) use/consume all day. I try to take quick showers and follow the "If it's yellow it's mellow (don't flush) and if it's brown, flush it down"when it comes to the toilet.

And you look faaabulous in your photo.;)

Sounds like a good time! I met Ms. Kearsley briefly at the RWA conference in San Antonio last year (her paranormal romance, The Firebird, won a RITA award). She's a very nice lady.
