    Look forward to your interview on March 25th and I know Barbara De Marco Barrett. I took one of her classes and attend her monthly author meetings in Corona. I met Dani Shapiro a few weeks ago. She wrote a memoir: Devotion. What a nice lady.

    You are lucky to have so many writers and writing groups and visiting writers in your area, Sonia. Have you ever considered taking classes at UC-Irvine?

    I have taken writing classes at UCI. Barbara's class and then her critique group at her house. Also another UCI extension class, Martha Fuller. I enjoyed them, and I agree I'm lucky to meet all these authors. next Friday, I shall meet Frances Mayes, “Under the Tuscan Sun,” at the Newport Beach Library where I volunteer.
