Weekend Book Signing

This is author Laurie Calkhoven.  She is the author of nearly 50 books for young readers. In addition to writing her own fiction, she has ghostwritten middle grade mysteries, authored TV tie-in novels, and contributed to many nonfiction series for children. Currently she is writing historical action/adventure novels for her own series, “Boys of Wartime”, published by Dutton Books for Young Readers.

You may recognize the name, because she is on this years faculty for our June Conference.  All her critique spots are completely taken, but you can still get into one of her many workshops she is conducting at the conference in June.  I can’t wait to hear what she has to say about building a career as a freelance writer. 




This Sunday, Feb. 12th, she will be signing her Book titled, I GREW UP TO BE PRESIDENT at Washington’s Headquarters at the Moland House – 1641 Old York Road, Hartville, PA  18974

This is your chance to create a family adventure, mix in some history, let the kids see Washington’s Headquarters first hand, while supporting your fellow authors.



New Jersey author Debbie Dadey will be joining her to sign her book WEREWOLVES DON”T RUN FOR PRESIDENT from her Bailey School Kids Series.  Debbie is not in the area the weekend of the conference, so she will not be available to come to the book fair.  This might be your only chance to get her books signed. 

Also, Debbie has a new book series, MERMAID TALES coming out on May 8th by Simon and Schuster.

Congratulations, Debbie!

Talk tomorrow,



  1. What great covers! 🙂


  2. Laurie is the BEST! Congrats to all those who were lucky enough to get her for a critique in June. I’m taking two of her workshops for the conference and can’t wait.
