MY CURRENT NEWS (January 22, 2019):

Had a wonderful time visiting the VCFA Writing For Children and Young Adults program, working with Uma Krishnaswami's Picture Book Intensive students. Next up: Ontario Library Association Super Conference, attending the SCBWI Winter Conference in NYC and being on faculty at the SCBWI Midwest and SCBWI LA conferences.

Entertainment Weekly included I'M SAD in their list of 12 uplifting new children's books for the next generation of readers (and leaders). I had a fantastic time visiting schools and bookstores during my I'M SAD Book Tour and have posted photos and highlights.Michael Ian Black talked about I'M SAD on Late Night With Seth Meyers! We also did a New York Times FB Live event about I'M SAD together!
