A lot of writers are struggling between the demands of Twitter, Facebook and Blogging so that when a fun event comes up, well, I suspect they stay at home and Twitter, Facebook and Blog.
The Writers Union of Canada hosts some of the best dance parties in the world. Writers who have argued bitterly against each other all day jump up the moment the band strikes up. I wouldn't say they are classical ballroom steppers either. And the bands the Union comes up with! Whoa! Who knew Alison Gordon, the wonderful baseball mystery writer, was such a fabulous tambourine diva.
Here I am with BC's fab Chocolate Lily winning author Norma Charles. In November she'll be back in Toronto touring for her new winner Run Marco Run. This is an author who understands the power of boogie.
