Author Talk with Vicki Lewis Thompson

Vicki Lewis Thompson won the Nora Roberts Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2008 RITAs. She also apparently turned luminaries like Indiana Jones from mild mannered anthropologist to whip wielding hottie. It’s true, I saw it on a video at the RITAs.

Also, having seen Gena and Jill in action filming these AuthorTalk videos, I’m amazed at how they turn out. We need to donate some money to get them an HD camera and a spare tripod. I know Gena is going to break the one that they currently have again because I saw her trip over it at least twice.

Jane Litte is the founder of Dear Author, a lawyer, and a lover of pencil skirts. She self publishes NA and contemporaries (and publishes with Berkley and Montlake) and spends her downtime reading romances and writing about them. Her TBR pile is much larger than the one shown in the picture and not as pretty. You can reach Jane by email at jane @ dearauthor dot com

    Jill and Gena are smart and clever and enormous fun. I had a great time doing my bit, and a better one watching the video.

    Jill and Gena are so funny — Nora played by JD Robb was so funny too. Loved it.
