I had a real blast at the New Jersey Romance Writers Put Your Heart in A Book conference held in Iselin, NJ this past weekend.  Not only did I get a chance to present my talk “Unraveling Romantic Suspense” but I was able to sign SENSELESS and MERCILESS at the book fair and attend Sunday’s booksellers luncheon.  Talks by Eloisa James, Suzanne Brockmann and Rachel Gibson were wonderful.

Eloisa James was the keynote speaker at the Published Author Retreat.

Sally MacKenzie led the 'Agents and Editors' roundtable discussion at the Published Author Retreat, which also featured wine and chocolate.

Giveaways at Saturday's breakfast included books from Brenda Novak and Suzanne Brockmann.

Here I am at Saturday's booksigning with copies of SENSELESS, MERCILESS and cover art for BEFORE SHE DIES (Feb. 2012).

I dontated a first chapter critique for a budding romantic suspense writer.
