Yes, it looks like I’ll be returning to the motherland of Oklahoma in August 2018, if the stars align. I will post the information as the schedule firms up.

Below is the schedule for the upcoming  Writer in Residence programs at Tempe Public Library, 3500 W. Southern Ave., Tempe, this summer. All Programs are FREE and open to the public. I’m really looking forward to seeing you.
