L.A. con photos

Here's a photo of me from the 2006 Hugo Awards ceremony at L.A. con IV. This is likely the closest I'll ever come to owning a Hugo, holding it for someone else, but it's a nice one.

Hi Darlene,

I stumbled across your blog and stopped to look, no doubt because you listed Shards of Honor among your favorite books. Then I saw the Hugo holding picture and spent some time reading entries. I also visited your website and read your review snippets.

Congratulations on your new release, your previous success in writing romance, and let me close with a question.

Have you ever considered writing science fiction?

My latest release is in that genre, Trinity on Tylos, from Whiskey Creek Press.

Hello, Pamela--

I've been involved in sf fandom for over 25 years, but I don't have any sf stories in my head to write. I'd like to be a science fiction writer someday, but right now all the fake people talking to me are in romance novels.[g]

Congrats on your release for Whiskey Creek! Would you consider it a paranormal romance, or straight sf?

Oh, it is "straight science fiction" but there are some romantic elements. Women seem to like some romance, or some male female conflicts-- at least I do!

Best of luck with your writing.
