I’m delighted to be a member of Pittsburgh’s vibrant community of authors and illustrators! I’m also an active member of Pennwriters and the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators., and I’m fortunate to be able to attend several author events throughout the Eastern United States. Here are some places to find me in the next few months:

Rehoboth Beach Fun Launch Party: November 10, 2018

Browseabout Books, Rehoboth Beach, DE

I can’t wait to attend this launch party for Beach Fun, the latest anthology from Cat & Mouse Press!  I’ll get to sign copies of the book, which features my first-prize short story, “The Tooth Fairy’s Helper,” as well as last year’s Beach Life anthology, which features my short story, “The Shot Shared Round the World.” And I even have a SQUAD coming with me (my mother and sisters!) as we revisit our favorite family vacation spot!

SCBWI Winter Conference: February 8-10, 2019

New York, NY

After the flat-out incredible experience I had last year at this conference, composed of invaluable master classes taught by such children’s literature luminaries as Gail Carson Levine, Linda Sue Park, Laurie Halse Anderson, and Jane Yolen, there’s no way I’m missing out on the next installment! Meet me at Penn Station?
