Jessica Day George
Latest Title: The Queen's Secret
Jessica Day George is The New York Times best-selling author of the Rose Legacy series, Tuesdays at the Castle series, the Twelve Dancing Princesses series and the Dragon Slippers trilogy. Originally from Idaho, she studied at Brigham Young University and worked as a librarian and bookseller before turning to writing full-time. She now lives in Salt Lake City, with her husband and their three young children.
Latest Title: Heartseeker
Melinda Beatty is the author of the Heartseeker series, and was raised on a steady diet of science fiction, fantasy and unrealistic expectations. After living in boats, basements and attics, she and her husband now reside in Western Maryland with their two fierce mini-women and a Labrador who’s perpetually afraid of the trash can. Her passion for books spills over into her second career as an indie bookseller, where she shares her enthusiasm for reading and is reminded once or twice a week that she needs to put on pants.

Multi Column: Number of columns of thumbnails to appear per page (normally defaults to 3):
Bigger photos? To save space on the server and because the modern camera images are so large, photos larger than 640x480 have not been loaded on this page. If you need the bigger sizes of selected photos, email me and I can email them back to you or I can re-load this page temporarily with the bigger versions restored.
2019 photos: Equipment this year: I continued to use my Fuji XS-1 cameras but, depending on the event, I also used a Nikon D7000.
Trips this year:
a four-day jaunt to Massachusetts (Boston, Stockbridge, and Springfield) to experience rain in another state,
Asheville, NC to visit Dad and his wife Dixie,
three trips to New York City (including the United Nations, Flushing, and the New York Comic-Con), and
my 14th consecutive San Diego Comic-Con (including sites in Utah).
That's it so far!
Partially Reviewed: Rough draft. I've gone through these pictures once, removing the worst ones, some duplication, etc. I usually take sequences of 4 or 5 pictures at a time and there are lots of near duplicates. I'll be doing a final review later which will cull the pictures down some. To be honest though, I'm way behind on doing final reviews.
