Carl Sweptson (retired Seal) and his wife, Anne Elizabeth, author of books about Seals. They gave a great insight on the Seal community, training characteristics of a Seal and what it's like being married to one.
Our second speaker was Amy Roderick from the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA). Special Agent (SA) Amy has done it all, including over 100 undercover deals and has taught undercover classes at the DEA Academy. DEA is all about legal vs. illegal drugs. There are about 5000 sworn agents and ten percent are women. They have agents around the world, including in Canada. Mostly in the host countries the DEA is used to train agents. Another great class.
Tomorrow is the monthly group blog. This time we're talking about What Makes a Novel Memorable. Check it out.
And next week I'm going to do more on the conference.
