Why did you choose to participate in this literary event? OOSA was one of the first to review my books when I didn't know what I was doing! How could I not attend?

What is your favorite pajama party game/memory? I have two memories. First was childhood. Always being the kid who could stay up later than everybody else then bragging the next morning. Apparently not much has changed because now the late night is when most of my writing is done. A pajama party at a club in Long Beach. Them ladies weren't playing, so we'll save that memory. LOL

What is your favorite pair of pajamas? Had some Star Wars jammies as a kid, matching long sleeve shirt and bottoms. I see old pictures where I was still rockin' em even when the pants were up to my shins and the sleeves dang near to my elbows.

What are you most looking forward to at the Pajama Jam? I'm looking forward to meeting some people that have been rockin’ with me hard for some years now, but it's always been social media interaction! No more virtual hugs!
