Running on Empty…

A ticket in hand, I was almost home.
Delay... Delay... Delay...
Ten o'clock turned to eleven.
Delay... Delay... Delay...
Eleven turned to twelve.
Delay... Delay... Delay...
I walk in the door, it's a quarter past two.
Delay... Delay... Delay...
The alarm goes off and the day begins a new.
Delay... Delay... Delay...
Only three hours of sleep and I'm running on empty.
Delay... Delay... Delay...
No coffee is strong enough but my purpose is plenty.

Theatre Huntsville is proud to announce its premiere Studio Series production, presented at the Studio Theatre at Lowe Mill ARTS & Entertainment.

Love, Loss, and What I Wore is a play of monologues and ensemble pieces about women, clothes and memory covering all the important subjects—mothers, prom dresses, mothers, buying bras, mothers, hating purses and why we only wear black. Based on the bestselling book by Ilene Beckerman.

Funny, compelling…Brought down the house…but [the play] is not a comedy: A story about black cowboy boots becomes a sad tale of being underappreciated in a relationship; a tale of two women shopping for their wedding outfits ends bittersweetly; and the recollection of a new bra is a quiet testament to a women’s search for dignity while undergoing treatment for breast cancer. —NY Times.

  • …put them in your drink.
  • …grab the salt and the shot-glasses and fill them with tequila.
  • …make life take them back.
  • …use the seeds to plant an orchard of lemon trees.
  • …ask for sugar and water to go with them.
  • …make lemonade and sell it for a profit.
  • …take them, don’t waste food.
  • …order the lobster.
  • …keep them, because hello – free lemons.
  • …say thank you and ask what else life has in store for you.

Huntsville Comic & Pop Culture Expo 2020

Huntsville Comic and Pop Culture Expo
April 18-19, 2020
Von Braun Center, 700 Monroe St SW, Huntsville, AL

The 2020 Huntsville Comic & Pop Culture Expo is right around the corner!!!

ABOUT THE EXPO:

I am so excited about this year’s Huntsville Comic & Pop Culture Expo at the VBC. This year is the 5th annual expo and it, like all the years in the past, will be bigger and better than last year. This year, there will be more guests, more cosplay, more gaming, and most likely a surprise or two! I’ve attended as an author all but one year and I can’t wait to be there this year. I hope you’ll visit my table and pick up a copy or two of my books. Remember, books make great gifts. 🙂

COSPLAY:

Cosplay is a staple at the Expo, and one of my favorite parts. Coming from a theatre and film background, I love seeing all the amazing costumes. Embrace your inner-geek, and celebrate your fandom by dressing up or just coming out to enjoy those that do.

Visit Me!

Every year I host an author booth where I sell autographed copies of my books. I’d love to see you there this year!

2020 Guests

Below is just a handful of the guests you’ll enjoy at this year’s expo… expo website for more details and to find a full list of guests.
