Lambda Literary organization hooked me up with The Tatnall School to talk about my work as a writer. I put on my robe, had some coffe then had stimulating conversation about a few short stories that I'd written. (One of them you could read here.)
It was incredible conversation. However, what intrigued me most was the ways a writer can interact with his readership. There I was asleep, then an hour later, I'm on the phone talking to students across the coutnry. Sweet. Something tells me this is the new wave of book promotion.

What a greater joy it was to sit next to Sumi Haru, a woman who recently released a memoir about her life. I'd greatly admired this woman for a long time. Back in the 1990's I went to an event that the Screen Actors Guild was sponsoring for actors of color in Hollywood. Sumi was one of their panelists. She had been on SAG's board since the 1970's and did amazing work to push for equal opportunities for minority actors in entertainment.
Now, in her 70's, Ms. Haru continues to grow and change. Author is her latest title.
