[We'll] do a brainstorming session over coffee or drinks (I’ll buy, of course!), at either RT or RWA (I’ll be at both, so winning bidder’s choice).
We can brainstorm a new plot, talk through a plotting tangle, discuss querying, or practice pitching. If the bidder wants to provide them, I’ll read a synopsis, blurb, or query in advance.

Tessa Dare is the USA Today bestselling author of eight historical romance novels and two novellas. She has twice been awarded the RT Book Reviews Reviewer’s Choice Award, and has twice been a finalist for Romance Writers of America’s prestigious RITA® award. Her books have been contracted for translation in ten languages. Recently, Booklist magazine named her one of the “new stars of historical romance.”

A librarian by training and a booklover at heart, Tessa takes great pride and pleasure in continuing to work part-part-time at her local public library. She makes her home in Southern California, where she shares a cozy, cluttered bungalow with her husband, their two children, and a big brown dog.
