I live in Plano. Was in DARA about 15 yrs. Left it last year. I have 2 fantasy e-books (a duology), 1 self-pubbed romance and a 2nd ready to pub. I lovesocializing with readers and discussing books. This sounds like such a fun and interesting group!
My favorite genre is fantasy and historical fantasy. I love sweeping epics with rich language. Juliet Marillier, Ann McCaffrey, and Stephen Lawhead are some favorites. But I do love a Well Written romance, too. I like Nora Roberts (natch!), Susan Wiggs, Judith Ivory, Linda Howard, Betina Krahn--oh, too many to remember. And I've found that I very much like mystery/thrillers by such writers as Lisa Jackson and Lisa Gardner.
I used to buy lots! But once I decided to cleanup our space with an eye toward eventually moving my mother and myself into a retirement situation, I stopped buying print books (well, OK, not Entirely, I slip up once in a while...). But I am purchasing books from Amazon on my Kindle. Because I work full time, paint (digital art), And write, I don't read as much as I used to. But...I have been purchasing historical fantasy on my Kindle and enjoying those when I can. And I've been purchasing 'how to' books about online marketing, etc.
Kindle Fire...just got it for my 64th birthday. Love it. So many books on hand and I can carry it everywhere. And...ah, I discovered "Game of Thrones" and I've been downloading the videos. That series is like eating potato chips! Can't stop.
Well, since I live in Plano, that section of the Metroplex is best for me. Also, because I work full time (until 6:00 every day), mid-week meetings would be too difficult. I wouldn't mind driving to perhaps the mid-cities for something really special (weekends only, of course).
I am absolutely open on this. I haven't done "High Tea", so must bow to the expertise of the group.
The ladies were comfortable and enjoyable. A very nice group of people with a common love of books. Made for a nice experience.
Hi, Sherri I am doing a book signing at ARealBookStore at the villages at Fairview Sat June 2 at 2 PM. It is for my new novel, FLYING SOLO.

whoops Sherri I meant! haha ;)
Hi Sherryi - welcome to Creative Jams! I'm so happy you joined us.. i can so relate to your struggle with making the most of your creations. I'm very inspired by everything that you are doing! Hope we see you out at an event very soon.
Howdy, Sherri! Marley & me enjoyed meeting you & Katie. Thanks for joining us for this hike & doggy brunch. Also, thanks for taking the time to post your feedback. Best wishes with your eBooks & graphic arts.
Welcome to our pack. Your profile is fascinating. Sherri is adorable. Unfortunately, dog parks aren't for every dog. Most folks aren't knowledgeable about good dog park etiquette. Besides, pack walks are more instinctually natural for dogs, being roamers by nature. However, I think dog parks are great for puppies and teens, especially when you schedule group play dates during the off hours when your pack can have the park to itself. Looking forward to meeting up with you two soon.
Sherri, I hope you and Katie will be able to join us tomorrow. Possibly just drop in for 10 minutes or so to let Katie slowly adjust to the other pups. Patti Brown
I took Jack to the Puppy and Advanced training classes at Petsmart. Those classes helped ALOT. Especially since he is my first dog so I had no idea of how to communicate with him.
