Biloxi, Mississippi was the target for book lovers everywhere. The book signing event featuring all genres from all authors was hosted Amanda Lanclos. We started with a wonderful meet and greet on Friday evening. With seventy-three authors attending, it was going to be a promising time.
Saturday morning the doors opened to VIP readers who were given a personal treat with an hour to meet and greet new and favored authors. The doors opened at noon to allow all other attendees. The moment the doors opened at 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. authors were kept busy meeting new friends and readers.
Be ready for next year, a tentative date is set for April 6, 2019. Keep up with Booking in Biloxi on their Facebook page or Follow them on Twitter.
I just learned that I lost my friend and nursing colleague Kathy Zunino. I met Kathy in 1989, when we were fairly young R.N.'s. Kathy was a N.P. but not practicing as one. My specialty was always Pediatrics so when we met up at Kaiser, we hit it off. Her husband Paul, an avid reader, has been a reviewer for AdC for more than a decade. He likes the sci-fi, scary stuff. But he has also been caretaker supreme for his wife, as if she trained him as an R.N. herself. My love to her three children. Rest in peace, Kathy Z., you were a good friend.
On Wednesday, March 7, Darren Moran suddenly and unexpectedly passed away, leaving behind many heavy and broken hearts. Words cannot express the devastating loss his friends and family feel at his sudden passing.
Darren was known for his sense of humor and hard work ethic. He was a gifted carpenter and an expert grill master. And he was a loving dad to his three young sons, Evan and Logan (11 year-old twins) and Ethan (six years old). Darren loved his boys more than anything in this world. And to the boys, Darren was their hero.
During this extremely difficult time, many people have been searching for something to do - a way to help the family. This fund was created to provide a way for people to help, if they choose to do so. Any contributions made to this fund will be set aside for the boys’ future education.
Please feel free to share this on social media and via email. We greatly appreciate any donations that are made.
