C M Wendelboe - Author Appearance and Book Signing

Lady K and I had a really good time last night at the Oriental and Navajo Rug Gallery in Longmont, CO where we got to listen to and meet author C M Wendelboe. His debut book, DEATH ALONG THE SPIRIT ROAD, has received excellent reviews so I was especially looking forward to the event.

Curt spoke for 45 minutes on his life of writing, his 38 year career as a sheriff in Pine Ridge, South Dakota. His life of lawkeeping gave the book it's sense of reality to the characters.

He started out the talk by greeting us in Lakota. I was immediately enthralled and completely forgot to ask how he came to learn the eloquent language.

I bought two copies of the book, one for my keeper shelf and one for Dad who I know is going to be a big fan. I had hoped he'd either stayed out here longer or come back out so he could come with me to meet the author and Cynthia, owner of High Crimes.
I have DEATH ALONG THE SPIRIT ROAD up next on the nightstand. I cannot wait to read it.

Jenna: I ordered a signed copy of the book for you. I hope you like it as much as I think I will.

Aren't author signings the best?

Thank you, Vickie. You're the best. :)

Mary: I love going, just don't to go to as many as I'd like.
Hearing what the author thinks of his/her 'baby', meeting them and seeing if they match my mental impression.

Jenna: No, you're the best!
