I don’t do this sort of thing often, but I really enjoyed speaking to the high school age students of the Second Baptist School in Houston during their Book Fair last week. What a great school, truly. Great kids, terrific librarians, and the few teachers I met also seemed top-notch. They arranged a place for me to sign books: a setting inspired by the first entry in my Homelanders series, The Last Thing I Remember. The hero, Charlie West, mysteriously wakes up in a cell with a single light bulb hanging over him — and there I am!
I later escaped the solid Christian values of SBS and the booming economy of Texas and made my way back to California… Wait a minute! What was I thinking???
