Gotta love Longmire!

C.J. Box

In March 2018, I made a quick trip to Sheridan, Wyoming and met one of my favorite authors, C.J. Box! What a pleasure! ​ ​

Sold Out

Josiah sold out at the Colorado Chapter of the International Reading Association conference in Denver. (CCIRA, February 2018)

W. Bruce Cameron

Spent quite a bit of time learning from this accomplished author!

Sales Tables

At CCIRA, my books were available right there among the best-selling authors of our time.

Ruta Sepetys

I also learned a lot from Ruta Sepetys. From Ruta's perspective, historical fiction is NOT the ugly girl at the dance.


Looking professional for the conference.
