A blog for those who like to read and do things different. (And yes, I fully realize "different" is grammatically incorrect. Kinda the point, right? ;-) )

Auction to Benefit the Flood Victims of Middle TN
I know, I know, it's been AGES since I've posted. *slaps own wrist* I've had a wonderfully busy spring, full of librarian events and school visits and book festivals. Will post pictures soon. But for now, I really want to show you this:
I am the author of "Selling Hope," a middle grade historical fiction novel set in 1910 Chicago on the vaudeville circuit, and "Autumn Winifred Oliver Does Things Different," an historical fiction account of the beginnings of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park through the eyes of 11-year-old Autumn. AND: Coming Fall of 2012: Ophiuchus et al in "The 13th Sign."
I never met a writing genre I didn't like. Some may call it a lack of focus; I prefer to think of it as a lust for life. I adore "kid lit," though, because I think it's the most honest writing out there. My writing gigs have included a lot of licensed character books: Scooby-Doo (Ruh-roh!), Strawberry Shortcake (Berry cool!), Bugs Bunny (Ain't I a stinker?), the PowerPuff Girls (Game over!) and next year, the new Holly Hobbie & Friends (Hey, girl!) But enough about me...
