Holiday Faire RP

By Thonie Hevron

Last year, my sisters persuaded me to go to the Rohnert Park Holiday Arts and Crafts Faire on the day after Thanksgiving. My first thought was old ladies who crocheted toilet paper covers, but I went anyway because I wanted to spend time with my precious sisters. What a surprise! The Faire was at a large venue, attended by hundreds during my time there and encompassed arts and crafts of all kinds. If I’d had more cash in my pocket, I would have spent waaaay too much money.

The idea of doing Christmas shopping the day after Turkey day has always kind of put me off–I’m not a fan of crowded retail stores. This Faire, however was perfect! Everything is handmade, often by locals. I thought it might be fun to have a table to sell my books. Then I took it a step further and thought about how many of my fellow authors would like to do the same.

So this year, I rented two tables and will sell my books seven other authors. For your shopping pleasure, all different genres will be available: mystery, thriller, childrens, young adult, urban art, historical fiction and memoir. A little something for everyone on your Christmas list made special by an author signature!

Check out the authors who will be there:

Cop Talk

For all things about cop culture-the work, the family, the days off.

The purpose of this page is to educate writers of all genres to be accurate in their portrayal of law enforcement professionals. This includes meter maids (I was a "lovely Rita" many years ago), dispatcher, patrol officers, detectives, and administrators.

I have many resources in my 35 year career in California law enforcement. I index and explain common errors that found in all media. Guests will also post about police professionalism today and tomorrow as well as historical articles about the way things used to be, "back in the day".

Examples of police media myths: missing persons cannot be reported by anyone but the family; missing persons reports can't be taken until the subject has been missing 24 hours; all cops eat donuts.

You get my drift.



Just the Facts, Ma'am posts Sundays and Fridays. Sundays scheduled writers Hal Collier, Ed Meckle, Mikey, and John Schick take us through the days and nights of those who protect and serve.
Friday postings feature authors sharing their thoughts about this journey we call authorship.
Extra postings will include California 'Officer Down' notices or something special. I will update progress of my current literary project as they develop.
