Holidays are over and it's time to get back to work! I will be heading down to Southern California for the Huntington Beach Author Festival at the end of the month and then up to Santa Clara to speak at the California Association of Teachers of English conference in February.

A slight correction to my last post! The CATE convention at which I will be speaking is scheduled for February, not January. The event takes place in Santa Clara, which is very close, so I won't have to drive very far! I will be presenting at the Huntington Beach Author Festival in January.

I have been asked to be a presenter at the California Association for Teachers of English (CATE) this coming January. It will be held in January, so I won't have far to travel!

Had a wonderful time at the California Reading Conference in Visalia this past weekend. While there I attended an author meet and greet and spoke to a number of new teachers about ways to present my books in classroom or library settings.
