I recently attended a wonderful three-day workshop in Asilomar, which is in the Monterey Bay Area. The Society of Children's Bookwriters held its annual conference for children's book writers and illustrators in Northern California March 1-3. There were many fellow writers in attendance, along with editors and agents. The keynote speaker was Lemony Snicket, and he was very informative and entertaining!

Here is the cover of my book WHEN THE WIND BLEW, due out in 2014. It is a companion piece to IF THE SHOE FITS, published by Henry Holt, Inc. in 2001. The illustrator is not the same, but I think she did a wonderful job complementing the original!

I had a wonderful time signing books at the Huntington Beach Author Festival. It is an annual event, featuring many children's authors, who visit schools in the morning and then meet for a book signing event at the Huntington Beach Public Library during the afternoon.
