frans was at once upon a time bookstore in montrose, california on saturday to support his local businesses. with frans in this picture are candace ryan, author of moo hoo, dan krall, the author of the great lollipop caper; and barbara brauner and james iver mattson, authors of oh my godmother, the glitter trap.
they had a fun afternoon chatting with customers and signing their books. there wasn’t much food there, so i stayed home and had a double bratwurst sandwich with sauerkraut and onions and lots of mustard. and then i had a nice catnap!
