Bookish Update!

October sure has been a busy month, and now that things are settling down, it’s the perfect time to update the blog (which means — pictures!). The beginning of the month brought a family trip to Disney World (my son’s first time), and while there, the second book in my NOVA KIDS series – POPPY MAYBERRY, RETURN TO POWER ACADEMY – released!

Poppy 3d coverOrlando BooksJust a week after arriving home from Disney, I was honored to be a featured speaker at NCTE’s Pennsylvania affiliate’s annual conference. My friend and colleague Jason Griffith and I were the opening featured session, and we discussed our journeys to publication (his new book FROM ME TO WE is an English teacher must-read!) and how writing has influenced our teaching of writing. I am super excited to announce that Jason and I will have a piece on that very topic published in NCTE’s middle level journal – Voices from the Middle – this December! I look forward to working more with Jason in the future.

One of the highlights of my time at the PCTELA conference was meeting another featured speaker — the amazing Laurie Halse Anderson. Here she is WITH MY BOOK! We had a great chat about publishing, writing, and life. Love her!


Finally, the launch party for POPPY MAYBERRY, RETURN TO POWER ACADEMY was last Saturday, and it was a blast! A huge thank you to all my family, friends, and fans in attendance. And an even larger shout out of thanks goes to the Palmyra Public Library and Aaron’s Books in Lititz!
