Dear Diary Reader…me and Desiree Holt

The Southwest Florida Writers Conference  HEARTS IN THE SAND was a wonderful event. Desiree Holt and I drove down Friday and stayed with my sister in Cape Coral. She has a wonderful location with a corner townhouse beside a wildlife refuge. The sunrise was inspiring both mornings and the the hospitality a delight. IMG_4713A few of our RWA chapter (Tampa Area Romance Authors) were there too. We were still functioning when the day drew to a close. Author Lynn Carmer shared her live FB video with me. You can see us on my personal Eliza March FB page

When we weren’t driving or in a class presentation, Desiree and I, the senior citizens of romance, brainstormed plots and fleshed out our upcoming books. Both of us write multi-genre novels, and Desiree is best known for being an award-winning, best-selling author of erotic romance. Not only a great author, Desiree is also an amazing person with boundless mental energy and a supportive soul. Spending time with her, someone with such varied interests and so many ideas, was invigorating to say the least. She kept me hopping. (A challenge for me at my age. Both of us are over seventy…one of us is over eighty…but who’s counting?) I’d like to thank Desiree for being a great conference companion. And I got to meet one of her children. Her daughter is absolutely fabulous.
