Lions, Tigers & Bears Writer's Weekend

Add caption
Spent the weekend with writer friends in Northwest Arkansas. First night was at the Crescent Hotel in Eureka Springs, where we had a wonderful 5-course meal, then joined the nightly ghost tour of the hotel. Ended the tour in the morgue (basement).

We attended the Ozark Creative Writing Conference where we were listened to David Morrell (Rambo's creator). What an interesting man and so informative and likeable.

Friday and Saturday night we spent at the Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge in the safari guest cabins. The refuge is doing great things for the wonderful animals who live there--Lions, Tigers, Bears, Cougars, Leopards, Bobcats, Servals. See the video my friend Shayla Kersten made of feeding time with one of the white tigers Zeus.

Visit their website to learn more about the animals and the people who make it possible and see what you can do to help out.
