BOBBI SMITH is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of more than 50 novels. Bobbi is beloved for her page-turning stories of love and adventure, which have earned her the title of Queen of Western Romance. Her latest novel is Runaway published in July from Leisure.

Currently a writer and editor at Seton Hall University, Greg is a frequent presenter at writers’ seminars, an editorial consultant to authors and literary agents, and at work on his newest fiction and non-fiction books.

With a lineup like that, it's one workshop I would love to attend, but I'm sorry to have to miss it due to a prior commitment. Maybe next time.
If any of my readers go to the workshop, please let me know how it was.
