Books -- reading and writing.
Home, cooking, the weather.
And whatever connections I can make between these chapters of my life.

Love these kids!

What a fun day at Mabry Elementary School in Tampa.

I love having GLORY BE on the Sunshine Readers List.
Such an honor to have all these smart Florida readers excited about our books!

The first thing I saw when I walked into this bright, happy space? Clifford! On that very cool stool.

One of the teachers made this Wordle about GLORY BE.

 I found a whole wall of notes! Here are two. Thanks, kids.

Here I am at the end of the day. 
(Not looking quite as spiffy as my picture...)

I signed a ton of books. 
Thanks, Barnes and Noble and especially Beth Gaffney, for bringing all these books for the students at Mabry. Thanks to super librarian, Joan McClelland, for terrific planning, a beautiful library, smart kids and teachers (and a yummy lunch). What a great day!

Aww! That's sweet! I am a reader from Louisiana that picked up you book at our local library. Confession here....I am an adult that would rather read young adult fiction. For some reason it appeals to me more than most adult fiction.
In adult fiction there is so much cussing and other things that are a wee to suggestive for my liking.
Thank you for writing a good book worth reading!
Merry from,

Thank you for commenting, Merry C. I get lots of adults, for many reasons, who say they love to read kids' books. What's not to like?!
