Fire Bird Tour Notes

We started at a lovely presentation in Charlevoix, Michigan’s beautiful library. If you ever have a chance to see this library stop and take a look. It is gorgeous (and I’m not just saying that because they have my books).

Then it was off to Traverse City where I made my talk-radio-show debut. And then signings at Wild Birds Store and Horizon Books. Thanks Michigan. I’ll be back soon.

Children’s Book Guild Members Sign Together

On March 25, I was joined by three friends from the Children’s Book Guild of Washington, D.C. We all signed books at the Fifth Annual College Park Book Festival. We sold some books, talked to interesting readers, and had a great time. From left: Pam Ehrenberg, Laura Melmed, me and Ann McCallum.

Writing (mostly) nonfiction with kids…



Last summer I taught writing at our local Creative Kids Camp and we put out a newspaper. Each day I met with different camp groups, ages five through 13, for about 50 minutes at a time. They wrote. They questioned. They drew amazing cartoons. And all of us laughed. This is definitely something to do again.
