I wrote a childhood memoir called "Running from the Devil" (Crossroad Books, New York City) that Publisher's Weekly called "hilarious, sad and fully absorbing." In 2018, the book was converted into a graphic novel (Markosia, London). One of the ways in which I generated attention for the book--which speaks to the power of a child's imagination--was by promoting a faux conference for imaginary friends and foes. That's right: a conference restricted to the unreal. "people." People from all over the United States enrolled their "imaginaries" in the "Unreal Roundup."
