Book Release Party

Holy crap, I'm actually having a book release party! Third book, first such event. Woo woo!

Come hang out and celebrate the release of my tornado memoir, "Twisted". I have no idea what I'm supposed to do, but I'm told I will be reading. If I can get my hands on enough vodka, maybe you'll be treated to a rant about the city's response to the tornado!

Otherwise, I'll likely have far more pleasant stories to tell, of rockstar friends and volunteers, gingerbread, a famous tiling job, and/or a community coming together in the wake of a natural disaster!
