And I'm not in the city that never sleeps

It's quiet around the Playground this week because PC, Insti and SP are all in New York City attending the RWA conference. It didn't work out for me to go this year, and while I'm okay with not being there, I'd be lying if I said I didn't miss it. The conference is a chance to learn and rub elbows with industry professionals. It's also a chance to see writing friends who live all over the world. I figured out once that the sun hardly sets on my circle of romance writing friends.

Next year's conference will be in Anaheim, California, and I'm sure hoping to be there.

So since it's so quiet here, I thought we could play a game -- a romance author name game.

I'll name a romance author and the next person names one whose first name begins with the last letter of the previous name.

Example: I name Nora Roberts. The next person names Sharon Sala.

Now it's your turn. You must name a romance author whose first name starts with "A."

Let's see how long we can keep this going.

And one randomly selected commenter will win a book from my stash. :-)

Ready, set, go!

Eileen Dreyer (I had to search on the RWA website. E is hard!)

Rachel Bailey - writes for Desire!!

Laurie G said...

C =Catherine Coulter

I wasn't sure if we were doing first or last names?

Playground Monitor said...

We got a little off here. So I'll get us back on course.

Sharon Sala ends in A. My mom then used Andrea Laurence. That ends in E and Angel used Eileen Dreyer. That ends in R and Scarlet said Rachel Bailey. That ends in Y and I'll use Yvonne Whittal, who wrote for Mills & Boon from 1975 to 1992.

Now someone use an author whose first name begins with L (and try not to use one whose last name begins with Y because I can only come up with one other Y name and that author's last name ends with Y and then we'll be stuck).

So... L anyone?
