Desert Dreams Conference Wrap Up

I’m not sure even where to begin. The conference IMO was a great success. Like any event we had our share of technical difficulties, but all and all it went smoothly.

Donald Maass, for those of you aren’t familiar with him, is a NY agent who’s written 15 some odd books. The talk he gave on Saturday was inspirational. He changed the way I looked at my work and writing in general. On top of that he’s a genuinely nice guy.

The speakers and workshops were incredible. Sharon Sala is a hoot, in the truest sense of that word. I could listen to her tell stories about her life all day long.

Anna Genoese and Maureen Walters are two of the coolest chicks I’ve ever met.

Darlene Graham, Rachel Vater, Russell Davis, Paula Eykelhof, and Cheryl St. John absolutely sparkle from within.

Diana Gabaldon and Christina Skye I find absolutely fascinating. These two women are highly intelligent and make me wish I had hours instead of minutes to speak with them.

Rebecca York, Alicia Rasley, Jennifer Martin, Heather, and Lynn Kerstan cracked me up. I truly enjoyed meeting some of the industry’s finest. Wish you all could have been there. I suppose there’s always 2006.
