OCC/RWA Birthday Bash
Saturday, Oct. 13, 2012
Embassy Suites
900 East Birch Street
Brea, CA  92821
Doors open 9 a.m.
Highlights:
10:30 a.m.            Special Guest Speakers:  Jane Porter & Megan Crane
An award-winning novelist with more than 5 million books in print, Jane Porter is still a small town girl at heart, never feeling too far away from her roots in central California’s golden foothills, oak trees, and miles of farmland.             
After sixteen years in Greater Seattle, Jane has returned to California, and is now making her home in a historic Ole Hanson home in San Clemente, with her surfer husband and three active sons. When she’s not on the beach or speaking to writers, she’s at her desk working on her next novel. In September 2012, Berkley Trade released her new book, The Good Woman.

USA Today bestselling author Megan Crane writes women’s fiction, chick lit, work-for-hire YA, and a lot of Harlequin Presents as Caitlin Crews.  She also teaches creative writing classes both online at mediabistro.comand at UCLA Extension’s prestigious Writers’ Program, where she finally utilizes the MA and PhD in English Literature she received from the University of York in York, England. She currently lives in California, with her animator/comic-book artist husband and their menagerie of ridiculous animals.  For more info visit her at www.megancrane.comor www.caitlincrews.com.
