Tonight, Pierce College will host "Creative Voices," the third in our installment of bringing writers (and eventually other artists) to campus to inspire our students. Author Larry Niven, famous for his "Ringworld" series of books, will be interviewed by Barbara Hambly, writer of the Benjamin January mysteries, historic fiction, and fantasy. Barbara also teaches Western Civ here at Pierce. The program starts at 7:30 at the Performing Arts Building and there will be a signing and reception afterwards. Pierce College is located at 6201 Winnetka Avenue, Woodland Hills, California 91367. The program is free to the public, if you happen to be in the neighborhood.
I'm a professional photographer, a recovering attorney, an adjunct instructor of photography at a local community college and a four-time Jeopardy! Champion (Season 26.) Much of my spare time is spent learning to ride horses, an activity denied to me when I was a child. I love to cook and entertain and I am a passionate reader. I am married to an "old god" of the comic book world, writer Len Wein. He's the one who created Swamp Thing (with artist Berni Wrightson), the Human Target (with Carmine Infantino), Wolverine (with artists John Romita and Herb Trimpe), and Colossus, Storm, and Nightcrawler (with the late, great Dave Cockrum.)
