My son Ian enjoyed making funny faces with Bruce Hale, the author of the Chet Gecko children's mysteries (my boys have read them all, I think, so this was a big honor for them).
Here's one of my panels, with me at the far end, then Steve Mandel, a fellow mystery author, and then the three name authors:Melanie Lynne Hauser and Judy Merrill Larsen(who are also pictured below in close-up)
Melanie is the author of Confessions of Super Mom; Judy wrote the poignant All the Numbers.
Here's the signing table, but you notice the long line is for the legendary Max Allan Collins; this gives me time to chat with Laura Caldwell, also pictured below. Laura is the author of several chick lit novels and a couple of suspense books, including her latest, The Rome Affair.
