Our meeting this month is one you won’t want to miss! Caroline Mickelson will speak to us in the morning on Debra Dixon’s book Goal, Motivation and Conflict. Caroline has her BA in Journalism/Public Relations from Arizona State and a Masters in Teaching English as a Second Language, which she earned from Stirling University in Scotland. She’s had a dozen non-fiction magazine articles/newspaper features published. Caroline is a romantic at heart—she believes in love at first sight and magic when we write.
In the afternoon, New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Vicki Lewis Thompson will talk about “What a Difference a Brand Makes.” Ever since she learned about the birds and the bees, Vicki has considered the subject hilarious. She’s promoted that world view through nearly eighty books for various publishers, most recently and successfully with her Nerd series from St. Martin’s Press. Vicki’s newest release, Talk Nerdy to Me, will be out this month. Prior to finding her bliss as a romance writer, Vicki blew through several jobs that ranged from teaching and reporting to raspberry picking and swimming pool maintenance. None of them proved half as interesting as making up funny, sexy stories. She lives here in Tucson where she has a pool, but she no longer cleans it herself.
