Maryann’s Book Signings & Events
The July 1,2018 Author’s Panel at the Thousand Oaks Library was so much fun! There was a great turnout, and we did an hour and a half Q&A with attendees. Here’s a link to the article and a few photos from the event!
There was a full house at the “Everything You Always Wanted To Know About Novel Writing But Were Afraid To Ask” Author Talk and Q&A today at the Hill Road Library in Ventura (from 11:00 am- 2:00 pm). Each author spoke about what led them to write novels and answered questions from the audience about their process, inspirations, publishing, and more! A wonderful event. Everyone was so appreciative.

WONDERFUL event at the Barnes & Noble Ala Moana Center in Honolulu on Saturday, April 7 (1-3:30 pm). Here’s a photo of me (below). The management set out some chairs, gave me a mic, and I did an interactive talk with the audience for approximately ONE hour! It flew by. What a great group. It filled my heart with ALOHA!
Additionally, for the past three days the Honolulu Star-Advertiser has mentioned the event, as did Hawaii News Now, Midweek, and other publications.
Below is the front window book store display and some clips from the April 6 and April 7 papers!

WRITERS TALK | Local authors share thoughts on writing, making time and inspiration
By Emily Dodi
On Saturday, Feb. 10, the E.P. Foster Public Library will host a special author event. Four Local Authors on Writing and Their New Works will feature Maryann Ridini Spencer, James Francis Gray, Mike Kennedy and Sheila Lowe in conversation about their work, their process and the ins and outs of getting published. After talking a bit about their work, the authors will open up the discussion to audience questions. The conversation is likely to unfold like a good book.
“This is a fun group,” Ridini Spencer says of the authors she’s gathered for the free public event. Each author has a unique story to share; and as the audience will hear them tell it, there is no one way to write a book.
“First thing,” says Ridini Spencer, when asked when she writes, “I get up and do it before my other work.” She is also an award-winning screenwriter, TV and film producer and lifestyle journalist. “I carve out the time to write two hours a day. Once you get into the swing, it works!” That discipline helps her reach her goal of 20 pages a week, and it has resulted in the publication of the award-winning romance Lady in the Window (SelectBooks, 2017) and its sequel, The Paradise Table (SelectBooks, 2018).
