Ten writers for children. All with something to say.
I had a yoga retreat last weekend and that was a wonderful transition from working with hundreds of young authors to focusing on what I want to do this summer.
A new picture book is close to being ready to send off and I'm continuing to revise a YA novel. I'm also going to Printer's Row Book Festival this weekend in Chicago where I will be on a panel with Barry Lyga, Stephanie Hemphill, and Daniel Kraus. I am eager to hear what they have to say.
And I'm pleased I will get to be with my sister who lives there on the day my mother would have turned 80. We will tell stories together and think about all the ways her love of books and words is part of us.
