The Friends and Fiction weekly chat is a Facebook Live happy hour every Wednesday, 7 PM ET. It’s a highlight of my week! The ritual of logging onto my laptop to connect with readers and my writer friends Patti Callahan Henry, Mary Kay Andrews, Kristin Harmel, and Kristy Woodson Harvey is uplifting.¬† The weekly chat generates a lot of lively conversations! We tell fun stories, offer encouragement and writing tips. We answer questions from readers, spotlight indie bookstores, and even give prizes. It’s such a great time together! Based on comments from readers, they’re enjoying this happy hour together too.



My writers friends and I started this weekly chat at the beginning of April. It was simply a Zoom video call just among us so we could check-in, see each other, and feel connected. The experience was so incredible, we decided to broadcast our next Zoom chat on Facebook Live so everyone could join us for happy hour.



We invite you to join us live for the Friends and Fiction weekly chat on Facebook every Wednesday at 7 PM ET. We’ll broadcast live on Mary Kay Andrews’ Facebook Author Page. You can expect to see the five of us–Patti Callahan Henry, Mary Kay Andrews, Kristin Harmel, Kristy Woodson Harvey, and me.

We take turns highlighting our new books out this season. We’ll celebrate the release of On Ocean Boulevard during our chat on May 20th. Visit my book page to learn more and order your copy¬† before the big release.

Be sure to “Join” our Friends and Fiction Facebook Group Page and then post questions you want us to answer. We’ll be doing this weekly chat through May 27th.

Every Wednesday at 7PM



Join us, and invite your friends to be part of the fun too. Be sure to grab your favorite beverage for our Friends and Fiction weekly chat. If you miss the live broadcast, we’ll be sure to post the recording by the next day so you can watch it anytime.
