Afternoon Speaker: Kilt Kilpatrick

“The Dangerous Adventures of an Accidental Erotica Writer”

Bio:

Kilt Kilpatrick is the pen name of David Fitzgerald, an Irish-American author sometimes called "the Ferris Bueller of San Francisco." When he's not writing sexy stories and novels he is a nonfiction writer, public speaker, Bay Area event organizer, and somewhat oxymoronically, a biblical historian and atheist activist. He is linguistically promiscuous; he is conversant in Irish Gaelic and bits and pieces of about two dozen other languages, including Welsh, Breton, Hungarian, Japanese, Arabic, American Sign Language, Cherokee, Klingon and Elvish. He loves reading, movies, and dancing, and has been a saber fencer for over 25 years. He lives in San Francisco with his wife and no. 1 fencing partner Dana Fredsti (a.k.a.romance writer Inara Lavey). And yes, he does wear kilts.

2:00 p.m.
