penHere’s the pen Tara McCollum gave me at my graduation from Carnegie Mellon, saying I can use at my first book signing. That was 20 years ago. I still have the pen. And… I’ll be signing books at the Penguin Bookshop in Sewickley, PA on Sept 30th at 6pm ! I’m so grateful to Penguin Bookshop ( for hosting my launch party and book signing and to Robin Siddoway for her creative vision, for being my sounding board, and for her work in making this event happen. I have so many more of you to thank for your tireless support and encouragement over the years. I hope to see you there so I get the chance!
