Speaking Engagement At Rose State College February 2, 2007

Writers who are wondering about how to take the next step to get their work published can ask those who have done it during a writing seminar called, “Pen Pals: How to Get Published,” which will be held from noon to 1:30 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 2 in the H.B. Atkinson Theatre on the Rose State College campus, located at 6420 SE 15th St. in Midwest City, Okla.

The seminar is sponsored by the Rose State College Friends of the Library and is free and open to the public.

Pen Pals will feature two writing professionals; Merline Lovelace (, who has written a number of books in the romance market including the “Code Name Danger” series; and Mel Odom, who has authored hundreds of books in multiple genres including novels set in the “Buffy: The Vampire Slayer” universe, as well as the "Apocalypse" trilogy for Tyndale House Publishers, which was a spin-off of Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins’s popular “Left Behind” series.

Other authors who are slated to attend include Carl Sennhenn, former Oklahoma Poet Laureate, and Rose State College professors Gary King, author of “An Autumn Remembered: Bud Wilkinson's Legendary '56 Sooners,” and Tim Tharp, author of “Knights of Hill Country.”

Joshua Pace, author of “Scrying Glass,” a first-time novel written under the pseudonym J.D. Stiver, organized the event.

Hello, Mel. I just discovered your web site and your blog. You may not remember me, but I've taken your professional writing class at the vo-tech. I'm still busy rewriting the pov shifts in my series and sending out queries whenever I have the time.

If you need a break from writing, come and visit me at:

At this time I am focusing more on writing short stories for publication.

Maybe I will see you around. Thanks for everything you taught me in your class that has improved my craft!
