I highly recommend checking out Susanna Kearsley if you like historical fiction/romance stuff. I LOVE her. The event was sponsored by our library. A few months ago, her publishing company was holding a "Bring Susanna Kearsley to my town!" contest, where they were setting up a tour for her based on the votes received. The library really promoted the contest, and apparently Westerville won the contest by a landslide. She has a full tour lined up though. She was a really great speaker, very engaging, and she seemed very genuine. She came across as happy to be there speaking, as happy to meet all her fans, it was just all in all a great experience to see her.
