LosCon 31 - The Annual Los Angeles Science Fiction Convention Nov 2004
I was an invited panelist at the longest-running Science Fiction & Fantasy Convention in America. LosCon is well-run and well-attended, yet still an event where writers can meet their peers and fans in a comfortable environment. One can't help but learn something new or meet an old friend each day. Don't look for me in the gaming or at the costume ball or dance, but I do enjoy the art show and the booksellers in the dealer room.
A panel on "Researching Your Writing - Getting the details right to make your writing believable. Our discussion was well-received and we had great questions from a standing-room only attendance.

A panel on "Selling Your Novel & Finding an Agent." Standing-room only attendance. It was Sunday morning and we had a very lively discussion despite the dim lighting and less-than-exciting photo.

I have a great admiration for the writings and good will of author David Gerrold. Known among many things for his work on the original Star Trek series, including "The Trouble with Tribbles", David has won many awards for his books. I consider "Worlds of Wonder" to be the best book on writing science fiction. You can feel his passion for writing throughout the book.
