2013 Appearances ~

New England 2013 "Inside Story" Event

The Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators, in conjunction with First Book, is launching their first international "Inside Story" event at select independent bookstores. Inside Story is an opportunity for young readers, teachers, librarians, and children's book lovers to become acquainted with new releases. A group of traditionally-published authors and illustrators will share the "inside story" behind their recent publications. I'll be talking about "The Glass Puzzle" at the Odyssey Bookshop in South Hadley, MA! First Book will donate a book to a child in need for every book purchased.

"Keeping it Real After the Signing: Author/Agent Relationships"
Find out how the agent/author relationship really works from a panel of agents and their clients: How the agent query process feels from both the agent & author perspective, how submissions/sales to editors work, how agents and authors work together and more.
I'll be appearing on the panel with my agent Stephen Fraser.
