4 Chicas

 

The chicas of 4 Chicas Chat– Mia Sosa, Alexis Daria, Sabrina Sol, and I– had a chance to meet with Maureen Lee Lenker from Entertainment Weekly during the RWA®  National conference in Denver.

It was a lively conversation filled with laughter, insight, and the truth about how and why we came together.

In the News…

I had a whirlwind experience at RWA National in Denver last week that wrapped up with the Readers 4 Life Literacy Signing on Saturday where I signed copies of HIS PERFECT PARTNER and HER PERFECT AFFAIR.

Just before the event I spoke with Chaney Skilling from the Denver Post, who was working on a article about Romance Writers of America and the annual book signing that raises funds for ProLiteracy.

She touched on the organization’s efforts toward diversity & inclusion, efforts I’m proud and blessed to participate in. We have a long way to go, as an organization and an industry, but together we can ensure that all romance authors have a voice.
