Historically Speaking from the Decatur Book Festival

Greetings from Decatur, Ga., where thousands of folks have been enjoying the gorgeous weather and taking in all-things-books! Between shifts at our SCBWI PAL booth near the Children's Stage, I was able to listen to some fabulous authors speak about writing historical fiction. Here's a gem or two from several participating in a couple of different sessions: (more…)

Shepherds and Writing to Win

The Decatur Book Festival was nothing less than awesome this weekend. I had a great time presenting, and our SCBWI Southern Breeze booth was hopping all weekend!

Hundreds of people dedicated endless hours to make it a success, and I pondered another kind of dedication as parents brought their children by our booth. (more…)

Greetings from Decatur, Georgia, where I've had entirely too little sleep and entirely too much fun! Details to come, but it's been a great festival so far with enthusiastic crowds and dynamic authors and illustrators.

How fun to meet young wolf enthusiasts who happened by our SCBWI Southern Breeze booth by the children's stage. (more…)

Big ol' Snakes and Exploding Trees...

Hmmm... a little long between posts? Apologies! The hum of summer and unexpected visits from Mother Nature have interrupted my schedule.

We've been playing host to some unwelcome guests in our fenced-in back yard - copperheads! All three dogs have had encounters, but only one had the sense to stay out of strike range. I'm happy to report the other two are doing fine after overnight stays (just over a week apart) at the after-hours emergency animal clinic. (more…)

Cedartown, Poem in Your Pocket Day

Elizabeth Dulemba was right: the Cedar Valley Arts Festival folks put on a lovely show! Weather was a bit warm, but so are the organizers. Well done, ladies, and all those countless volunteer hours are for one purpose: to enhance the cultural and arts experiences of the community's youngsters. Bravo!


Tomorrow I'm delighted to be off to South Hall Middle School to enjoy the day with sixth-graders. Media Specialist Laura Losch goes above and beyond the call of duty to make reading fun for the students. (more…)
