Pardon the horrible backlighting, but here I am with Raymond Villareal who is not only a writer but an attorney practicing in San Antonio. He says that he is actually no longer practicing law and who could blame him because his book A People's History of the Vampire Uprising has just been picked up by 20th Century Fox. He held a terrific Q&A session for young people who want to become writers. I was so happy to make new friends at the San Antonio Book Festival.
There were lots of non-fiction authors there at the event. Actually the ratio of non-fiction writers to fiction writers was (in my opinion) about 2:1, but with over a 100 authors attending there were plenty of fiction writers mingling with their friends and fans.
