Fairhope Writers Colony Retreat














If you're hoping for one of my usual posts on the latest writers workshop I'm attending, I hate to disappoint you. Here I am at the inaugural Fairhope Writers Colony Retreat, hosted by Sonny Brewer, taking copious notes and thinking about what I'll write about the retreat when Sonny says:




"What happens at the Wolff Writers Cottage STAYS at the Wolff Writers Cottage."








Let me just tease you a bit by saying that Day 1 (Monday) of this retreat was already worth the price of the week. And I think it's okay for me to say that our guest author was Frank Turner Hollon.











This morning we're gathering at Latte' Da, the coffee shop adjacent to Page & Palette Bookstore. I'll leave you with a picture of some of our group in front of the Wolff Writers Cottage, and Frank and Sonny in action during Day 1.

Maybe I'll have more pictures for "Wordless Wednesday."

Glad to know Sonny's colony is off to a great start. Please tell him hello. I imagine Frank Turner Hollon is a hoot if his novels are any indication. Enjoy!

I haven't read Frank's books but after spending time with him yesterday I plan to read a couple of them. He shared some wonderful stuff with us yesterday. I'll definitely tell Sonny hello for you, Darrelyn.

Oh my goodness...Frank is there too! Give him a big hellooo from me. Many moons ago, Frank hooked me up with Sonny, who hooked me up with MacAdam/Cage. I love that writing and reading community down there!
