  1. Thanks for posting this, Diana! We are looking forward to featuring you and your book at the retreat. I just finished your book myself and I would highly recommend it to any writer or Inklings fan.

  2. Believe it or not, I've been to Navasota, though all I got there was a haircut, of all things.

    But not only is it near Houston, which is full of interesting things, but it is very near Washington-on-the-Brazos, once capitol of the Republic of Texas. So not only have I seen the building where the U.S. Declaration of Independence was signed, but I've also seen the one (albeit it's a reconstruction) where the Texas Declaration of Independence was signed. Surely not an experience to be missed.
