Hello, everyone! I am super excited to announce that I will be appearing at Kennywood Comicon in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, on June 17.
I’m stoked about this one. As you may know, Pittsburgh is my hometown, and I still have family and friends who live in the area. Kennywood was our go-to place every summer through high school graduation.
Kennywood itself is this really amazing amusement park that has both managed to honor its history (the park dates back to 1899!) and bring itself into the modern era with great new rides and games. It was part of my inspiration for the Funland amusement park in The Demon Within. (Basically, Funland was Kennywood, if Kennywood had gone to the Renaissance Fair, with the Disney World tunnels thrown in for good measure.) Kennywood’s Jack Rabbit was the very first roller coaster I ever rode on–and coincidentally, it’s also one of the oldest operating roller coasters in the United States. So yeah, I’m a little sentimental.
Kennywood Comicon will take place on Sunday, June 17, from 10:30am until the park closes at 10pm. (Be warned, however: vendors are allowed to start leaving after 6pm, so it’s definitely to your advantage to show up early.) You’ll get a discount on your park admission if you wear a comic-themed shirt!
I’ll be in Artist’s Alley in Pavilion 33–and *fingers crossed* I should have copies of BOTH of my books there!
I. Can’t. Wait.
