Pen Panel Success

Our Pen panel at the Brooklyn Book Festival on Writing Historical Fiction was exciting!

The moderator, Fatima Shaik, asked provocative questions followed by questions from the audience. I enjoyed contributing to the discussion along with my fellow panelists.

After our panel, we stayed to sign books and to say “hi,” to people passing our table.
