I had quite a proud moment today when I finished the last page of the funny little novel that broke my heart a little. I have never sat down to read a full length novel in French before, just because it seemed like something I’d never be able to complete. I surprised and delighted myself […]
I was so thrilled to find this title in my library’s system for me to download as an ebook. I so clearly remember loving this author, Joan Aiken, as a girl. She’s the one of authors that made me go to the library with my Dad and come home with armfuls of books. My Dad […]
Well it wasn’t so hard, after I got over the initial nerves of being on camera in my best Calvin Klein sequin dress. I did it. I created a video of me talking about my books and thought you’d like to see what I’m like when the camera is rolling. Pictures can only go so […]

Just started working with my favorite illustrator Donna Murillo on the cover for my second book. It’s always a little like Christmas day finding the right image for a book. I can’t wait to see where we start from today.
I went to the mailbox today and there it was. Something I’ve been waiting 4 months to receive. The crazy part is that I wasn’t expecting to receive my ITIN number until May or June and here it is just 5 days after they sent my official documents home too. I am feeling elated, […]
