This was a great event. I surprised my wife by bringing her (from 2 hours away) to this event. I just did not realize how much she would enjoy it. My only regret is not having her mother join us. I'm hoping you can plan another event with Kimberla in the near future. Thanks for this great "Writers LIVE" platform.
