Sunshine Coast writer’s festival book signing

Wow. That’s is all I can say really. It was my first writer’s festival, i thought i would be reading to 20 people, over 450 in the audience. I have always loved the CS Lewis quote, ” we read to know we are not alone>” Up there on the stage looking out at such a large, warm, supportive crowd i realized i write to know i am not alone, too.

Special thanks to Cathie Roy of the Coast Reporter for sharing these pics from that day. The first is book signing after the reading, the one with the big smile is right after i came off the stage. Nice shot Cathie, she was smart, after taking pictures at the stage she ran ahead and was in the tent where i sign books after the reading. She caught that moment of relief and joy.
