Writer buddy Mary Kay Andrews aka Kathy Hogan Trocheck was at Quail Ridge Books tonight to launch her new book, Summer Rental. As is our tradition those of the “Weymouth 7” who were able to make it got together beforehand at Tripp’s for dinner and always lively conversation.
In front that’s Margaret Maron, whose latest in the Judge Deborah Knott series will be Three Day Town, out in November http://www.margaretmaron.com/ NancyOlsen, owner of the best independent book store around, Quail Ridge Books http://www.quailridgebooks.com/ Sarah Shaber whose new series set in WWII Washington, Louise’s War, will officially launch in August (but you can get your copy now) http://www.sarahrshaber.com/ . In back that’s me and Kathy (aka Mary Kay). Two of the hubbies joined us this evening. Brave men.
We sorely missed Diane Chamberlain (whose most recent book, The Midwife’s Confession came out last month) http://dianechamberlain.com/, Katy Munger (whose Dead Detective series is about to get a book 3) http://www.katymunger.com/, and Alex Sokoloff, http://thedarksalon.blogspot.com/ who is working on a dozen things at once it would seem.
