Portrait of Kim Headlee

created for the hardcover edition of
King Arthur's Sister in Washington's Court.
HELLO AND WELCOME to my page of personal appearances. Please introduce yourself; I love chatting with my fans, fans-to-be, and authors of all stripes!

I carry a “Square” point-of-sale device for processing credit card transactions, though of course cash is always welcome. :)

Many exciting events are brewing on my horizon! I will fill in more details (dates, times, addresses, panel titles, web sites, etc.) as they become confirmed. At each event I will be selling as well as signing my books unless otherwise noted.
