1. Festival of Books Follow-Up

    I had a total blast at the L.A. Times Festival of Books last weekend. What a thrill to be a on a middle grade panel with terrific writers I admire so very much and to give away and sign 10 advanced copies of Zinnia and the Bees.

     

    Pictured below, clockwise from my left: Erin Entrada Kelly, Pseudonymous Bosch, Steven B. Frank, and A.S. King. This photo makes me very happy.
