Witch House

I have been quietly working on developing a new picture book about a witch. Here is a quick sketch I did of her house today.

Jump For Joy

Welcome to NY2015SCBWI Winter Conference! I had so much fun seeing all my buddies again. I am so honored to volunteer for a professional organization that celebrates creativity in children's literature. The speakers were awesome, with memorable presentations by Hervé Tullet (PRESS HERE) and Kwame Alexander (THE ACCOUSTIC ROOSTER). We celebrated Kwame's recent Newbery Medal for his novel in verse, THE CROSSOVER.

The Portfolio Showcase and Gala were a whirlwind of activity and socializing. It is a blast to to mingle with everyone and anyone in the children's book publishing scene. I am energized and am already back at work. Thanks, SCBWI.

I got to see my first Broadway Show!
