SCBWI booth at ALA

Here I am (that's me in the middle) promoting my mid-grade Holbrook: A Lizard's Tale at the SCBWI authors booth at the ALA meeting in Seattle. I'm sandwiched between authors Maureen McQuerry (left) and Randy Powell. Maureen writes poetry and non-fiction and recently published  her first children's book, Wolfproof. Randy has written a number of awarding-winning books for teens, including Tribute to Another Dead Rockstar and The Whistling Toilets (which the librarians snapped up.)

Just to prove that we actually did get visitors...

Also, thanks to Jen Robinson for the link to a heart-felt and touching post by Cynthia Lord, author of the Newbery Honor book RULES, about receiving The Call.
