Hi, there Lou! Sorry I'll miss the UCF Festival this year. Maybe next year! Meanwhile, have you looked into the Lake County Festival of Reading? It's up your way. I'll be a featured author, doing my MAMA GETS HITCHED thing on Thursday, April 7 at 7 pm (Tavares Civic Center); then the next day, April 8 on the mystery & mayhem panel in Mount Dora. Lots of great authors. Here's the festival link:
