IMG_1266Event: Malice Domestic
Location: Bethesda, MD
Date: May 1 – May 4, 2015

It was a whirlwind weekend of camaraderie and fun times at the Malice Domestic Convention. From having early morning breakfasts, to joyous lunch meals and delectable dinner choices, the company was exceptionally enjoyable with laughter throughout.

There were so many activities to take part in and I especially enjoyed Malice-Go-Round, where authors have 2 minutes to sell their book and the Jungle Red Panel where they had to answer questions in 20 seconds and I was the timekeeper.

The Saturday night banquet is, of course, the best event of the Malice weekend and I was so thrilled when my friend Terrie Moran won for Best Novel. Blushing in the corner was me as she gave me a shout-out in her acceptance speech. I also enjoyed my seatmate who was the father of Kathryn O’Sullivan. He was delightfully charming.

Overall, this was the best Malice Domestic Convention that I’ve attended and I can’t wait to see what happens next year.

I always say that I will take notes on my activity, but at the end of the day I’m bushed from said activity and all I have are pictures. They say pictures are worth a thousand words, so here you go:
