Grand Desert Days and NASA!

I've been gearing up for the 2nd Annual Grand Desert Days Festival and Charity Event this Saturday, April 18th. I'll be reading from my new novel Desert Magick: Superstitions and, boy, has it been a challenge finding an excerpt tame enough for any junior ears that may wander in. But I found one! I'm scheduled to read at 1:15pm but will be signing books from 10am - 2pm. If you're in the Phoenix area, please come out and join the fun. More info on the appearances page of my website www.danadaviswriting.com

Meanwhile, while recently going over some old family photos, I was reminded of my kid-dom days when I used to stomp around NASA's Johnson Space Center. My brother and I used to walk around the grounds and the buildings back in the day. We really loved that and eating at the cafe with the workers. Our grandfather was an engineer for NASA at Cape Canaveral and Huntsville in the 70s, and I remember watching the Apollo-Soyuz launch from the beach with the other families. Yep, I'm dating myself here. But, hey, I'm younger than the Brady kids. Grandpa told us he launched the rocket by pressing the button with his right index finger. Of course, we kids believed him. Grandpa was a storyteller as well as an engineer. One of my nieces now works at NASA, so guess we're keepin' it in the family! I told her when she finishes her astronomy degree, I get to pick her brain for my sci-fi novels.

Well, back to rehearsing that excerpt.

Happy reading!
