Past Appearances
Below are some of my past travel gigs. It makes me a bit tired looking at this list….all that driving, flying, packing, unpacking, making sure mikes worked, prepping talks to fit the audience, and signing books.  People always ask if my arm gets tired, signing books.  No—it is writing the book that is laborious.  Signing them is a cinch, especially if the (mostly) kids tell me how Michala/Mykayla/Micheala (and other assorted names) are spelled.  So far I have not ruined a book except to write HAPPY BIRTHDAY on one of them.  Where that came from I do not know.   The owner didn’t care; I just added the right date.  Now for those appearances of years back…
