BAM! Festival

I’m ready to pack my bags for BAM! Festival in West Palm Beach, Florida. Registration is now open for this free celebration of books, arts, and music returning to downtown WPB this April. Go to to find more information about this amazing event. I’m looking forward to a little Florida sunshine and I hope to see you there April 9th!

POETREE on the Indie Next List!

POETREE has been selected for the Spring 2019 Kids’ Indie Next List. It’s such an honor to see this springtime story side-by-side with new books from so many authors and illustrators I’ve admired for years. Beth Seufer Buss from Bookmarks in Winston-Salem NC says, “As an adult who feels disconnected from poetry, I wish there had been more books like this for me to read as a child. I like the combination of poetry and friendship in this tale and the idea of children having their own poetrees!” Click here to see the rest of this season’s list.
