A tale of two sisters

I had a lovely time in Findlay, Ohio last week. Findlay is near Lima (for the Gleeks in the viewing audience), and near the other non-fictional towns where the Warblers and Vocal Adrenaline hail from.

I was in Findlay where HOTEL was chosen as their CommunityREAD, and not only did I speak with adult readers, but also about 1,000 high-school students. I love speaking with students because they don’t hesitate to ask questions like, “How much money do you make?” and “Can I have your daughter’s phone number?” (Yes, one intrepid lad did ask, and no Tyler, you cannot).

Speaking of, I was in a mad rush to get home in time for Rissa’s first prom and Kassie’s birthday. Saturday’s photos echo the dichotomy that can only exist between sisters.

Rissa with her date. Kassie with her "date" -- Bob, the karate dummy. Little brother not included.For the longest time one wanted to be a doctor, the other a medical examiner. Can you guess which is which? And of course there’s also the pairing of Madi, who is musically and artistically inclined, and Haley, who will go off to college next year, hoping to become a behavioral scientist. Which has led me to the inexplicable conclusion that my kids watch far too much crime TV.

And in case you’ve been keeping track, yes, there are four—FOUR teenager girls in my home, which has officially been dubbed: The Estrogen Holding Tank. Caution: Contents Under Pressure.

In other news, I’m working on a few pitches for Secret Identities 2: Shattered.
