Guess who I've been hanging out with!

Last Saturday, I was on a very fun Young-Adult panel with (left to right) Laura Preble, Debra Garfinkle, and Cindy Pon. It was at Romance Writers of America--San Diego chapter.

Our topic: Writing Young Adult. It's like writing for adults. Only different.

Catchy title, eh?

I had a great time. I loved being on a panel with three brilliant YA authors! I loved the RWA audience! I loved having lunch served to me!

And now I'm over guest blogging at Eileen Cook's blog. Eileen Cook is hilarious, asks fun interview questions, and is a little lax about getting dressed in the morning! (Sorry, Eileen, I couldn't resist!)

Tomorrow is the last day of school for my children! Yippee!

I love how your books are falling out of your hands! A sure sign of a good author. :)

cindy said...

thanks for organizing this barrie! looking forward to our next soiree. =DD

Lily said...

That is a sign of a good author! The director of my local library has purchased your collection after I recommended them to her. Fun books!

Annie said...

Happy summer! And thanks for being on that panel. It is so helpful to those of us who aspire to greatness to hear from those who have conquered those mountains!

Teresa said...

Congratulations on you panel, Barrie! Have a fun summer.

You should be a full time slogan writer, seriously that's so simple it's brilliant.

Sure that isn't a pic of a rock band?

Sarah Laurence said...

I wish I could have been there. I’m working on a sporty romance for young adults and keep rewriting those romantic scenes.

Barrie said...

Sarah: I think you would've gotten a kick out of those romance writers! Do you have a chapter near you?

Charles: I'm glad you recognized just how cool we are. Cool enough to stand in for a rock band.

Sarkastic: Oh, fine. Now I have to confess. I didn't actually come up with that title all by myself. In fact, I may have had only a minuscule amount of input!

Teresa: Thank you. And I hope you have a fun summer up the highway from me!

Barrie said...

Annie: Just keep on writing. ;)

Lily: I love you!

Cindy: It's always fun "to panel" with you!

Cassandra: I think I dropped several things that day! ;)
