The event started with Mary Ellen reading a selection of her story “Tiger’s Eye View”.

The Crowd, which was too large to count, was enthralled by both of these master writers. I am still amazed by the reaction of the crowd.
After the reading the Authors answered questions from the crowd.

After the questions the Authors stayed around to talk to the throngs of adoring fans and continued to please everyone.
All in all it was a amazing, nearly life changing, day. I look forward to reading the entire book, and I impatiently await the next works of these two amazing authors.
