This weekend I attended the ACFW Conference in Indianapolis, Indiana. The conference was absolutely phenomenal, and I can't wait to post more about what I learned. But for now, check out these pictures of all the fun.
Here I am with Carol award winners Christina Berry (author of The Familiar Stranger- a must read!) and bestseller Terri Blackstock. We shared a flight back home.
This is Etta Wilson from the well-respected agency Books & Such. She was kind enough to get a picture with me.
Katie Johnson, one of my friends from the ACFW loop.
Another sweet new friend, Kathy Lay!
The wonderful Jennifer Slattery, whose manuscript I've had the pleasure of reading in part, and let me tell you, it's wonderful. She's going to be published in no time.
You may recognize these ladies! Here I am with some of my absolute favorite authors (L-R) Deb Raney, Diann Hunt, and Denise Hunter. Such kind people!
Me with new friend Cheryl Eklund.
Ane Mulligan, my zone president.
The fabulous Cara Putnam who couldn't be more helpful.
And you probably recognize this face as Jenny B. Jones, a two-time Carol award winner who is every bit as adorable in person as she is in her books. What a privilege to meet her! And no, I didn't plan the coordinating purple.
What a dream it was to meet all of you! Thank you for your kindness and for welcoming me into this group of talented storytellers.
