Participating in six panels, Kaye is excited about being a part of the festival.
“Besides working as the coordinator for the festival for the Maryland Romance Writers so that everything runs smoothly,” Kaye says, “I am looking forward to visiting with my faithful readers. I have the best fans, who reach out to me via Twitter and Facebook and my website, but meeting in person is special.”
Kaye recently launched Book Two in the Hearts of the Anemoi series, West of Want.
“I adore this series, the characters are the most fun I have had,” Kaye enthuses. I will have copies for those that haven’t had the chance to read it yet. I hope everyone comes out to enjoy all of the fun at the festival. I love spending time with my readers.”
Celebrating the 175th Anniversary of the Baltimore Sun, the festival includes more than book reading.
Besides the non-stop readings on multiple stages, there are scheduled cooking demos by celebrity chefs, poetry readings and workshops, panel discussions, walking tours, storytellers and hands-on projects for kids, street theater, live music, and a delicious variety of food, beer and wine. Whew!
