In Celebration Of The Muse!

I’ll be reading Lioness In A Size Eight Pantsuit this Saturday evening and would love to see you there. It’s an extra special night, my sister Jannette from Arizona will be in the audience along with my sons and my man. She’ll be the one that whistles like a Hell’s Angels.

This event sells out every year, so please get your tickets and join us.
