RT Convention Schedule
I can’t decide what I’m most excited about – meeting my favorite authors or meeting the readers. I’ve been looking forward to the RT Convention and I’m so thrilled it’s here. Please come find me. I’ll be giving away swag and signing copies of IF I LIE and TOUCHED at various events.
