After twenty-five years of trying, I had finally won and had made it to the Writers and Illustrators of the Future gala award ceremony. It’s an impressive event that many liken to the Academy Awards of science fiction and fantasy. If you ever attend one or if you watch the recording, you’ll understand why. This is a formal black-tie event in the best of Hollywood venues with bestselling authors and Hollywood stars on the guest list. And they are all there to support you as an up-and-coming writer of speculative fiction. This was the proudest moment of my writing career. It happened April 5th, 2019 at the Grand Ballroom of the Taglyan Complex in the center of Hollywood.
