Back from Orlando

Every year, Dreamspinner Press hosts a workshop for DSP authors. In addition to authors, a lot of the DSP staff attends, and the past couple of years so have a few of the talented audiobook narrators. It’s always a wonderful way to learn and be inspired, to catch up with old friends and meet new ones. And since the workshop’s in Orlando, I decided to bring my older daughter along this year as her high school grad present. Before the workshop, we spent 4 days at Disney parks, and after we did a day at Universal.

We met characters. That’s the lovely lyric next to me. She let us drag her everywhere. 

We rode rides. Somehow none of us had ever been on the People Mover before.  

We ate traditional foods.

We Harry Pottered.

We walked. A lot.

At the workshop, my daughter went on water slides and did some homework under painful, horrible conditions. You can’t see it in the photo, but Venona Keyes is atop that water slide too.  

We hung out with beautiful people, sometimes in the Orange Room. That guy I’m sitting with? That’s the amazingly talented Joel Leslie! He’s just finished recording Flux, which should be available soon on audio. 

And finally, on our way home, we apparently went south of the border. Or so said my daughter’s phone.

Now it’s back to real life. My birthday is in 2 weeks and I have a couple little treats in store for you!
