Speaking at CRA November 5th, this Saturday at Solano Community College in Vacaville! My talk is "Achieving the Honorable in Children's Lit" ; I'll be checking up on some of the #^$@# works of literature making headlines recently, but mostly focusing on the honorable, with activities for students revolving around honorable book characters. I speak at 3:15 p.m. Please come by and join in.

Not that I don't already have hundreds of ideas for picture books in my drawers, but Tara Lazar's Pi BoldMo (Picture Book Idea Month) sounds like so much fun, I signed up the first day.
New PiBoIdMo Circle

To those participating in +Tara Lazar's PiBoIdMo (Picture Book Idea Month) event: +Joanna Marple has started up a private directory. I'm not sharing the URL/post here because it wasn't shared publicly, but perhaps if you post below she'll add you to the thread? Or send her a message directly?

Anyway, you can sign up for PiBoIdMo as well as find out more info here:

Sometimes fan letters make my today. A mother wrote that she and her children love my HEART OF A TIGER, feel empowered each time they read it, and just named their kitten Bengali after the hero of the story. Thank you for making me feel my life is worthwhile.

I am here. I am lost. Just announcing myself. Fellow writers and creators and friends, I'm happy to see you here, but beware, I have no idea what I am doing.
