Ozarks Romance Authors (ORA) Writers Conference

Today's forecast for St. Peters, MO: Partly sunny, high 71 degrees. "Sunshine on my shoulder makes me happy . . ."

Missouri is a lovely place to be in the spring, and the Ozarks are especially scenic this time of year, with dogwoods, lilacs, and rosebuds in bloom. How about combining a trip to the Ozarks along with a writing conference? Here's one I found out about just last week.

Kathy Mullens, Conference Chair for the 22nd Annual Ozarks Romance Authors Writers’ Conference, e-mailed me and asked if I would spread the word about their annual conference. So, here are the particulars.
