Some pictures from my first Fairy Tale Lust reading Friday night at Bean There Cafe in Norfolk, Virginia. It was a lovely evening with champagne, fairy tale cake, chocolate, a signature "Lusty Latte" (dark chocolate, cherry and amaretto), body painting by Jeff Edney Studios and a lively and supportive crowd of friends and strangers.
I read Charlotte Stein's deliciously spooky "The Return" and my own demonic "In the Dark Woods." I was in a dark mood, apparently.
