Along with my friend Kristin Lenz I’ll be celebrating the birth of a new book. I’ll launch William and the Witch’s Riddle (published by Alfred A. Knopf, and illustrated by Lee Wildish). And Kristin will launch her new book The Art of Holding On and Letting Go (Elephant Rock Books). There’ll be refreshments and prizes, as well!

Everyone’s welcome. See you there!
I’m excited to announce that my newest book, a middle-grade adventure novel, will make its appearance on Sept. 13th. WILLIAM AND THE WITCH’S RIDDLE is illustrated by NY TIMES best-selling illustrator, Lee Wildish. It’s published by Alfred A. Knopf. We’ll be celebrating with a book launch on Sunday, Sept. 25th at Nicola’s Books in Ann Arbor at 3pm. Please join us at Nicola’s located in the Westgate Shopping Center, 2513 Jackson Avenue Ann Arbor, MI 48103. I’ll be launching William into the world beside my friend Kristen Bartley Lenz who will be celebrating her new novel THE ART OF HOLDING ON AND LETTING GO (Elephant Rock Productions, 2016).
It’s garnering great reviews already!

Austin bound this weekend to meet up with friends, get introduced to the lovely and talented Patrice Barton, and to do a program for writers in the Austin area. Patrice will also be getting her Crystal Kite award for illustrating MINE! (Oh, those darling babies!!!) Rarely do I get to meet one of the illustrators of a book I’ve written. And this weekend, I not only get to meet her but we will also read together at a Friday night reception, and present together on Saturday. How cool is that? I hope to have pics to post afterward. Stay tuned.
