|At Chantara Thai beforehand.|
|Just before the reading. Look what a nice display the bookstore made behind her!|
|The author with scads of her books; the piles were depleted ere the night was over!|
|Adjourned for coffee afterwards with friends|
My husband read the first chapter the next morning, standing in the kitchen as he oversaw French toast production. He said, "Her prose is like Hemingway." I kid you not!
Someone else in the household thought the title was "Laws of the Cat" (which is funny because Susan is an attorney), and proceeded to list what those might be:
- Do not scratch a human
- Always brush your fur straight
- Always put the right catfood in your catbowl
- Always do what the police cat says
On that note, good night! Congratulations, Susan. I couldn't be prouder or happier for you.
