Can't believe that I just received a wonderful royalty check from Penguin for I KNOW AN OLD LADY WHO SWALLOWED A PIE!  The book came out nearly twenty years ago and is still selling strong! Let's hope for twenty more!

I have been invited to visit Brookside Elementary School in Beaumont, California next May. While there I will speak to all of the students about the writing process, editing, illustrating, publishing, etc. Should be fun!

Recently returned from the CSLA (California School Library Association Conference) and it was a wonderful experience. Along with presenting, I participated in an "Author Speed Dating" session with members of the organization and attended the California Young Reader Medal Awards Dinner. Featured speakers were Audrey Vernick and Jennifer Nielsen.
