I had my first bookstore event at M is for Mystery in San Mateo, California, on Saturday, November 8, 2008, at 2 pm.  The weather was rainy outside but it didn't dampen my spirits.  Thank you, Ed, for inviting me.  I shared the venue with the lovely author Robin Burcell, the author of five mysteries including her latest "Face of a Killer."  We chatted back and forth and then answered questions from the audience.  I felt relaxed and enjoyed every minute.  When we started to sign books a woman holding two copies of A DANCE WITH THE DEVIL approached me and shook my hand.  She repeated over and over how honored she felt to meet me.  It turns out her divorce lawyer had called her and asked her to attend the event because he's used my law two different keep her abusive husband from collecting alimony.  I'm often asked how many women I've helped by changing the no-fault divorce and, quite honestly, I don't know.  But now I can say for sure that I helped one woman.
