I was at the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books yesterday and someone came up to me and informed me that THE HUNCHBACK OF NEIMAN MARCUS was #9 on the Los Angeles Times Bestselling Paperbacks! This is the very first time a book of mine has been on a bestseller list. I am dancing with the stars!
The panel I was on at the Festival of Books, LIVES INTERRUPTED, was exquisitely moderated by Amy Alkon, who wrote I SEE RUDE PEOPLE. Never was there a more prepared, more intelligent, more entertaining moderator!
Here is a portrait I took of Amy:
And my fellow panelists were brilliant and charming:
Rachel DeWoskin, who wrote BIG GIRL SMALL
Luanne Rice, who wrote THE SILVER BOAT
and Lian Dolan, who wrote HELEN OF PASADENA
I bought all four of their books and can’t wait to begin reading them!
Mother’s Day is less than a week away, so this is me reminding you, that THE HUNCHBACK OF NEIMAN MARCUS would make a perfect Mother’s Day gift!
