Cryptids, Comics, And Pop Culture Shenanigans!

I may be teaching a short workshop, and there’s a possibility of writer chats and other fun stuff where you can meet me and talk about writing and other creative project stuff, or just get your geek on about cool Pop Culture, Literature, and Art in this nifty little town at the edge of sparkling Strait of Juan de Fuca, and just at the foot of the majestic Olympic Mountains and the entrance to Olympic National Park in Port Angeles, Washington.

Schedule details coming soon!
