Looking for Romance at A Writer’s Convention, Richard Wheeler

by Patti Abbott

A writer of westerns decides he wants a wife. He’s tried it once but wants to try again. A friend, a writer also, recommends he attend a conference for romance writers in Seattle in the hope of finding one. To his dismay, the women are too busy attending panels and interacting with each other to pay attention to him. He ends up in the bar with their husbands. A gentle story that was a pleasure to read. P.A. From an ebook THE COLLECTED STORIES OF RICHARD WHEELER.
