Catching up

Thursday, February 7th, 2013

I have been very quiet here these last few months, not because I haven’t been busy, but precisely because I have been super-busy. Here are some of the things that have been going on:

* Gil Marsh was nominated for the 2013 Teen Choice Book Awards. (Voting is still open until February 13 here)

* In November, I had the great pleasure of participating in the Bring Your Own Book and Blanket evening at the Davis Street Elementary School in New Haven, Connecticut. I met with a great group of inquisitive and engaged students who joined me to think about how you go about writing books that include many different cultures.

* In December, I finished the novel that I had been working on for NaNoWriMo, only to realize that I have to entirely restructure the beginning. I have since been working double-time to complete a serviceable first draft. At some point I’ll share some of the fascinating research I have been doing to help it along.

* In January, I presented at the first Shoreline Arts Alliance Winter Workshops for Writers & Illustrators in Chester Connecticut, and discussed the art of revising novels. The workshops were well attended, and as a bonus, the proceeds went to benefit the Tassy Walden Awards: Fresh Voices in Children’s Literature.

And coming up:

* Gil Marsh will be released in paperback on February 26th. Woot!…

Lyme Consolidated School’s Young Author Day

Friday, May 4th, 2012

I had the great pleasure of spending this morning at Lyme Consolidated School as a guest speaker for their Young Author’s Day. I got to meet all the students there, from kindergarten through 5th grade. I told stories, read a few, and told them what it was like to be an author of children’s books.

The students were wonderful! In turns insightful, curious, and attentive, they asked terrific questions, and were very patient with me as my voice croaked and squeaked (leftovers from a cold and allergies). I had really good time!

I want to particularly thank Pricipal Jim Cavalieri and Media Specialist Shanon Pimentel for making me feel so welcome, and all the teachers who helped and asked questions, too. What a great school!…

Promising Pals at James P. Timilty Middle School

Sunday, June 5th, 2011

On Friday June 3rd I had the great pleasure of attending the 25th annual Promising Pals Breakfast at the James P. Timilty Middle School in Roxbury, Massachusetts. The Promising Pals program matches 6th, 7th and 8th graders with adult professionals who become their pen pals for the school year.

I was paired with a 7th grader, and we exchanged letters over the course of the winter and spring. On Friday, we finally met in person. It was wonderful to spend some time with the person whose letters were such a pleasure to receive. We shared breakfast, played games (we were almost evenly matched at Connect 4), listened to music, toured the school and grounds, and talked. I had a lovely morning.

Before I met my pen pal, I attended an assembly in the auditorium with the other adult Promising Pals. During the welcoming remarks, we were asked to stand. First the group who had been in the program for their first year stood. After we sat back down, those who had been with the program for 2 to 4 years stood. Then those who had been there for 5 to 14 years. Then 15 to 24. And finally those who had been with the program for all 25 years. I was inspired and humbled by the dedication of these individuals to so many generations of students.

Bravo Timilty Middle School. …
