One of my favorite places to go as an author is Lori Foster’s Readers and Authors Get Together. It’s tough to get in as an author, so I go as a reader. I’ve been going to RAGT for over ten years and hope to continue to go every year.

If you’re one of the lucky people to get in, there are many fun and inspiring things to do. Meet authors and readers.  Boardroom activities. Dancing. Eating. Playing bingo. And…did I say eating? The food, sponsored by the generous authors who attend the conference, is amazing. I’m also quite fond of the giant cookies the Marriott bakes every year. Thank you Marriott!

There are so many interesting people to meet, readers and authors alike. Every time I go, I get inspired to better my writing so that one of these years, I become a sponsor. A gal can dream.

Then there’s the fabulous raffle, led by Beth, who is one of the most amazing ladies I’ve ever met. Baskets of goodies are donated to raise money for one amazing charity. RAGT19 raffle basket proceeds went to CancerFree KIDS, a local organization with a mission to eradicate cancer as a life threatening disease to children. 

This part of the convention has become an obsession of mine. Every year, I strive to bring the biggest, most stuff-ed’est (yes, I typed that) baskets ever.  I hope to raise as much money as possible for such a wonderful cause. 

RAGT2022 raised a record-breaking $44,000!

Every empty bottle is filled with stories.


It seemed too good to be true that she’d met someone like him at a dating service. He didn’t belong here like the others.
