Rubbing elbows with a best seller

Last evening I attended a St. Louis Writer's Guild event. Guest speaker St. Louisan, and best selling author, EILEEN DREYER who also writes as Kathleen Korbel spoke to us about romance and mystery writing. She said there are three rules, and nobody can agree on what they are. :)

Yes, you too would have enjoyed this personable writer who worked for years at local hositals as a trauma nurse. She said the only way she could make good things happen in her day was to write in her spare time. See, readers, it can be done.

Her web site has a wealth of information. Be sure to check out her travel site too. Eileen is as down to earth as your next door neighbor, and she is spirited, funny and helpful.

Hi Linda,
Thanks for posting about Eileen's visit to SLWG. She spoke to our group awhile back and was inspiring. She is a human dynamo--funny and smart.

Greetings Ladies,
I wish you all could have met Eileen. She says she has ADD and is right brained, but I'm with Donna, she's just a human dynamo.

Hi Linda, I had wanted to go to that, but I was so tired I stayed home. Thanks for the link though!
