My sweet sister, Larisa Paige of He Cooks and She Bakes, is my very first publisher! It was a delicious novel.

I'm not sure if I can smile any wider. This is immediately after winning the Royal Palm Literary Award for First Place in the Unpublished Fantasy novel category in October 2011 at the FWA Conference. I was just a little excited.

These are authors from Let's Talk, like me in the middle! My short story, "Ma Says," is included in the all-dialogue collection.

I met and chatted with fellow FWA member and critique group leader Chuck Waldron.

The RPLA winners! I'm on the far left, front row.


  1. Oh - I love these pics. And you couldn't smile any bigger. LOVE it.

    Love you - your older yet shorter sis

  2. Love you, Risa! That brownie cake was such a special treat
