Appearances

2020 Schedule

Gallifrey One
LAX Marriott Hotel
Los Angeles, CA

February 14-16th

Welcome to the hottest ticket in Los Angeles fandom where all the Whovians hang out. I will have a table in the dealer room and be in attendance for all three days. I will have Dr. Who themed jewelry, Celtic jewelry, and books at the table. Look for the table with the fire-breathing dragon on its sign.


Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, I will be attending virtual readings/conventions that you can join via Zoom, Skype, and other online means. While I hope to resume in-person appearances, like all of us, I await a time when it is safe to venture forth once more.
