This Thursday, while my family stays home and eats delicious food, I’ll be boarding a flight to Indianapolis for my first Starbase Indy! I’m looking forward to checking out a new con, meeting new people, and catching up with old friends.

For the majority of the convention, you can probably find me in the Writer’s Salon (Suite 162). You can also poke me on social media. I’m happy to meet up for a meal, a drink, a coffee, or just a chat!

Copies of all the books in my Steel Empires series will be available for purchase.
