When a Celebrity Believes You Are a Celebrity

12 Dec

Gwen and JimIt’s not often when one gets a chance to rub shoulders with a celebrity. Well, I experienced more than that when Jim Vance, along with my girlfriend of 29 years, offered to host my very first Reading for my debut novel, The Missing Five.

The Reading was a huge success because Miriam Rudder planned the event with grace, style, and proper attitude when she told guests that she adamantly refused to believe the sponsors of the More Magazine marathon, New York Road Runners, when they told her I had completed the half marathon. She informed them that she would call the Po-Po if they didn’t find her girlfriend–me. Long story short: I was still out there in Central Park, somewhere, trekking along to complete the marathon. NOTE: I finished my first marathon in 6 hours and 23 minutes–slow, but I ran across the finish line. I did it!attitude

Miriam went on to tell that she has learned when Gwen Pegram says she’s going to do something, she does it. “Don’t bet against Gwen,” she warned guests.

Thank you Miriam and Jim for believing in me and for hosting a wonderful Saturday afternoon event as we ate, drank, and had great camaraderie with family and friends.
