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

Hanging with a bunch of famous people.

I love hanging out with kids' books authors.
Seriously. They are the best.
Today I got to meet some of my Facebook, email, Twitter friends IN PERSON!

Danette Haworth, for example. We meet on Facebook at all hours.
Little did she know, I'm a big fan of her books. I can prove it! Way back when, I followed her blog:

I read her first book in 2008. I've read others. I love them.

Lisa Graff and I crossed actual paths in 2008 at the fabulous SCBWI Maryland event.  And I was delighted to actually meet Lynda Mulally Hunt today. The list goes on and on. I am honored to be hanging out with these fun, creative, smart folks.

If you happen to be hanging out near PALM BEACH FLORIDA tomorrow, please check out the APRIL IS FOR AUTHORS schedule and pop in to say hello to all of us.

Here we are!

Someday I will meet Famous Authors, too! And you! (Love Danette and Lisa's books, too. So much.) :-)

Augusta! It was great meeting you in person FINALLY and during the daytime on top of it!!! Thanks for all your kind words, and when I see you again, I'll stick a pen in your hand so you can sign my copy of Glory Be!

And thanks, Kimberley!

The best part was seeing and chatting with so many great writers. Kimberley- you hang out with them all the time! Yes, Danette, we'll sign each others' books, maybe January in Miami.
Oh, and I may have to add your picture of Ed's yellow socks. Yowzer!
