Ruminations on reading, writing, rural living, retirement, aging—and sometimes cats. And maybe a border collie or other critters.

I'm an elderly retired teacher who writes. Among my books are Ferradiddledumday (Appalachian version of the Rumpelstiltskin story), Stuck (middle grade paranormal novel), Patches on the Same Quilt (novel set in Franklin County, VA), Them That Go (an Appalachian novel), Miracle of the Concrete Jesus & Other Stories, and several Kindle ebooks.

2010 Hanover Bookfest

Last Saturday, I attended the Hanover Book Festival in Mechanicsville. The festival was sponsored by the Hanover Writers Chapter of the Virginia Writers Club. They've been doing this for years, thank to the tireless efforts of festival director, Joanne Liggan.

My display was on the Cedar Creek Publishing table because Ferradiddledumday is published by Cedar Creek.

Fifty-some authors were there, plus a bunch of folks who came to socialize, talk to authors, check out the exhibits, and buy books.

Among them was Harvey Tate, president of Hanover Writers. He's standing in front of his display.

Storyteller Linda Goodman was there.  I love her book, Daughters of the Appalachians. "Linda's blog is "Tales From the Tapestry." 

Austin Camacho, author of the Hannibal Jones series and one of the Virginia Writers Club's most prolific writers, was there, too. His blog is "Another Writer's Life."

This dragonfly caught my eye. Isn't it pretty?

It was part of Monti Sikes' table decoration.

A couple of tables were decorated with horses. Naturally, my little snoring horse was part of my table's decor. 

Here are two others:

. . . and there was even a black cat:

You never know what you'll find at a book festival.
