FAN 2015

It's coming! Mark your calendars for Feb 20-22, 2015. . . Registration is now CLOSED.

New York Times Bestselling authors Christine Feehan and special guest authors Maggie Shayne and C.L. Wilson bring you FAN 2015 at the beautiful Lafayette Park Hotel & Spa in Lafayette, CA.



We would like to encourage FAN attendees to dress up in 1920's style garb for the Friday night Speakeasy & to dress in quirky and fun, simple or elaborate wonderland attire at the Saturday late morning Wonderland Tea. This is not mandatory, but is sure to add to the fun.



Eight Time #1 New York Time Bestselling author Christine Feehan has over 40 novels published, including four series. Each of her four series has hit #1 on the New York Times and her last five new releases have all debuted as #1 on the New York Times including two hardcover releases: Dark Curse & Dark Slayer. She is best known for her Carpathians for which she earned the title "the Queen of Paranormal Romance" from both Publishers Weekly and USA Today.

Feehan says she owes much of her success to her dedicated fans who try to buy her books the week it comes out. She has created an online community for her members.  The community offers a place for Christine to interact with her readers.  It also offers interactive book discussions for each of her books in every series.

Maggie Shayne is best known as the New York Times bestselling author of more than 50 novels, nearly 30 novellas, a former soap writer, (The Guiding Light, As the World Turns,) a former advice columnist (Shayne on You,) and RITA Award winner. But what’s less known about her is that she’s been a practicing Witch for almost as long as she’s been a published author.

While The Portal series is entirely fictional, and necessarily brimming with special effects, any portions of the stories pertaining to the actual practices and teachings of witchcraft are entirely authentic. Due to the oathbound nature of some Wiccan rites several of the spells and other rituals, particularly rituals of Initiation and elevation, have been altered, abbreviated, or are deliberately vague. These rites are revealed only to Initiated Witches who reach the appropriate levels of study in traditional Wiccan Covens.
