A Taste of Local Authors

I seem to be amused by this scene

Looking forward to tonight’s reading with eight other authors at Owl’s Nest Bookstore. I plan to read from the scene in a fictional Owl’s Nest in my novel, To Catch a Fox. As an homage to both Owl’s Nest and my friend, Pamela McDowell, I call my bookstore Ospreys, after Pam’s acclaimed children’s book Ospreys in Danger.
