I am thrilled to be attending the Western Writers Roundup this week. It's a national convention for active writers of various genres, but primarily western writers. The itinerary includes relevant visits to many historical sites and enlightening seminars with top notch authors and publicists. I look forward to hearing CJ Box and Craig Johnson in the next couple days. When I received the program for the Roundup a happy little surge went through me. I painted the boot on the cover, so both of my creative outlets are represented here, artist & author!
