My First Ever Panel & Writing Summer Flings!

So Sunday is my first panel and I'm really excited. If you're in Chicago, head down to the Printer's Row Lit Fest. Here's the details:

June 9th (Sunday) - Printer's Row, Chicago 10am
Panelist - The First Chapter: Debut Children's Authors
Located - 525 S. State Street - University Center/Park/Foundation Room - Printer's Row neighborhood on the blocks surrounding Dearborn and Polk Streets.

Also, the blog topic this week is:

Have you ever written a summer fling? Or are all your fictional relationships the deep, forever kind? If you did write one, how would it begin (the meet cute)? Where would it be set? Give us a few paragraphs sample.   

I am horrible at romance, and have never written a summer fling...or a fling of any kind for that matter. I feel my romance turns out all soap-opera-y and I think romance should be left to others. What about you all, have you written a summer fling...would love for everyone to post a sample!


  1. so exciting! Good luck on Sunday!

  2. I was just writing a blog post about how hard it is to do justice to love while writing! It is hard. I still try, though. It's just fun.

    Dang, this month is getting away from me. I hope your first panel went well!

  3. The solo stuff I write... no, that wouldn't really turn up, but the collaborative work, definitely that's at the heart of it. It's a deeper thing than a summer fling though.
