Our guest speaker will be Helen Hardt: Business – Making Contacts to Build your Business

#1 New York Times bestselling author Helen Hardt will discuss the importance of contacts in establishing your career. After that, we’ll play romance jeopardy!

#1 New York Times, #1 USA Today, and #1 Wall Street Journal Bestselling author Helen Hardt’s passion for the written word began with the books her mother read to her at bedtime. She wrote her first story at age six and hasn’t stopped since. In addition to being an award winning author of contemporary and historical romance and erotica, she’s a mother, a black belt in Taekwondo, a grammar geek, an appreciator of fine red wine, and a lover of Ben and Jerry’s ice cream. She writes from her home in Colorado, where she lives with her family. 

Our meeting hostess is Kerry Root
