It's Fair, Festival, and Rodeo Season!
Summer is here, and that means it's time for fairs, festivals, and rodeos in Oregon! I'm excited to announce that I will be signing books and meeting readers at four different fairs this year! If you're in the area, I'd love for you to stop by and say hi! I will have copies of both my historical fiction novels, as well as my thrillers.
The first fair is the Robin Hood Festival in Sherwood on July 14th and 15th. This festival is a family-friendly event that features jousting, live music, and a medieval marketplace. I'm excited to participate in this celebration of all things Robin Hood.
Next up, I will be attending the Newberg Old Fashioned Festival from July 27th - 30th. This festival has been a favorite for Oregon families for over 60 years! With carnival rides, live entertainment, and delicious food, there's something for everyone to enjoy. I'll be there with my books, eager to meet new readers and chat with old friends, former students, and fans.
August 4th and 5th will find me at the Deschutes County Fair and Rodeo. This fair has been a staple of Central Oregon summers for over a century, providing the local community and visitors alike with a week of fun and excitement. From rodeo events to carnival rides and live music, there are plenty of activities to enjoy. I'm looking forward to this fair and rodeo because my thrillers are set at the Deschutes River and the Cascade Lakes--right in the backyard of this fair. If you plan on visiting or are in the area, drop by and grab a copy of my books to take home with you.
Finally, on August 12th, I will be attending Aurora Colony Days. This festival is a celebration of Oregon history, as it takes place in a town founded in 1856 by a group of German immigrants. The festival includes a parade, a quilt show, a craft fair, and more. I'll be there, signing books and enjoying the festivities.
If you're in Oregon this summer, I hope you'll come to one of the fairs, festivals, or rodeos I'll be attending. I'd love to meet you, sign a book or two, or even just chat about literature, writing, or whatever. These festivals are the perfect opportunity to spend quality time with family and friends, so mark your calendars and join me for a day of excitement and some good old Oregon entertainment.
