I lucked out when I saw that Rebecca Ryals Russell was hosting a visiting Muse Author at her home in north Florida. Roseanne Dowell and her husband traveled from their home in Ohio to Florida. I was acquainted with
Rebecca through the Muse Conference. We had attended one of the same forums and I had invited her to come to our local SCBWI. She was kind enough to include me in the dinner on Saturday evening as they were coming down to my neck of the woods—Gainesville. We met at Carrabbas Restaurant. You can’t miss Rebecca in her signature hat. Not only did I meet Rebecca and Roseanne, but Marsha Lockom, as well. Marsha was wearing a beautiful knitted cape that she had knitted to coordinate with her dress. I was glad to meet all their very nice husbands, too. We had a fun time talking about publishing and authors and our fearless/busy/noodle-wielding leader, Lea, who is planning the wedding of her daughter in her spare time. We are all VERY excitedly awaiting the publication of our first books being published by MuseItUp Publishing. Stay tuned for more news on that front.
