I'm down.

I'll be the short curly hair chick. :p BTW, while my real name is Gina, I do answer to Divia because that's what everyone used to call me at cons when I would go. I refused to give out my real name. :D

We should also take a pic and post, if everyone is cool with that.

Ok, I made a simple sign. It says (get ready for it): HISTORICAL FICTION ONLINE.

Creative, yes?

Anyway, I'll be in the lobby at 9:00 pm near a sitting area holding the sign so that we can find each other.

But, we may meet before then, my name is Amanda so if you meet a blond named Amanda it's probably me!

I'm short, dark-haired, and bespectacled. I'll be the one looking for straight pins for my hennin covering because (a) husband forgot them and (b) daughter didn't know what they were!

[quote=""Divia""] I have no idea what is around the hotel since I've never been to SD before.[/quote] You're in for a treat -- although you probably won't have time to do much sightseeing around SD. But I gather that your conference is at the Hotel Del? It's a beautiful old hotel in a beautiful setting (Coronado Island) so enjoy.......

HNS Conference in San Diego, with some of our online members. I took a lot of photos but my camera decided to blur over 60% of them. Bummer.

Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favourite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.

It was fun meeting everyone in person. I had a blast meeting all the other writers generally!
And now I have several days of dealing with the problems of elderly relatives in Los Angeles. :o I'm going to wish I was back at the convention.

Great meeting everybody! Divia, going east is always harder for me than going west. Hope you recover soon. MLE, sorry to hear about your id troubles; hope it can be resolved soon.

I'm hanging out in California vacationing and visiting my sister, so probably won't be spending too much time on the boards.
