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

Check it out!

 There is a LOT going on over at Kirby Larson's beautiful website and blog.

HERE'S the link to her blog.
I'll wait till you come back. Go ahead. Click on over.

During April, she's got a great giveaway going to celebrate strong women.


The very first on the newly-designed blog.
I am so proud.

If somehow you've missed her books, there are many. Most recently, DASH, the story of a dog and the young girl who owns him.  Set during the early years of World War II, this middle-grade novel just won the prestigious Scott O'Dell Award.

If you'd like to really get to know Kirby, here's an interview from a few years back, just as one of my favorite of Kirby's books, THE FRIENDSHIP DOLL, was about to be published.

It's tricky to navigate the world without friends! Any world!
But writers need advice, support, connections, which can be hard when you're sitting by yourself in a rooftop garret staring out the window all day long.
Well, scratch the garret thing.
Maybe Starbucks with a laptop.

If you're interested, I've written a few words about WRITER FRIENDS. Click on over there.

And once more- don't forget to enter Kirby's giveaway!

She does have a beautiful new website. I do wish there was a way to subscribe to her blog as I have yours. By the way, I am reviewing The Way to Stay in Destiny on my blog today. You might want to check it out.
