Writers Read Moomins

Visit Marshal Zeringue's Writers Read blog for my guest post on reading habits, including my recent island-themed picks. Thanks to Marshal for the opportunity to participate on his blogs - much fun!

One of my picks was Tove Jansson's The Summer Book.  She is the author of my favorite books of all time - the Moomin series - so reading her adult writing was like a homecoming.  Happy sigh.

I also just discovered a new Moomin-esque wonder, Hilda and the Midnight Giant, by Luke Pearson. Of course I adored it.  The first in the series, Hildafok, is on hold at the library, and I am eyeing the third installment, Hilda and the Bird Parade...

 Delightful!

Coffee with a Canine

Today I have a guest post up at Coffee with a Canine, Marshal Zeringue's super fun blog about authors and their dogs.  Check it out!  Everything you always wanted to know about my favorite dog-pal Arthur.  I'll also be contributing to Marshal's blog Writers Read, discussing my island-themed summer reading. Stay tuned for details.  In the meantime, here's Arthur!

Over the Moon!

What a great event in Crozet, Virginia yesterday at Over the Moon Bookstore!  I had a wonderful time meeting readers and relaxing with cookies, crafts, and cosutmes.  Here's a very special mermaid who swam over to hear the story:

And a few pictures of the reading in action:

Thanks to all who came out for the evening, especially those who recommended the delicious Crozet Pizza next door.  And an extra special thanks to the good samaritan in Harrisonburg who helped us with a flat tire on the way home - we are forever grateful.     

Happy Summer and I'll see you in August!

A Lovely Day at Hooray for Books!

Thanks to all of you who came to my storytime signing yesterday at Hooray for Books!  It was a lot of fun creating sea-themed crafts and reading from my new book, When Mermaids Sleep. Here's a peek at the festivities:

Hope you can join me next Saturday at Over the Moon Bookstore in Charlottesville, VA for a milk and cookie storytime with crafts and signing.  To celebrate When Mermaids Sleep, you can come in your jammies or dressed as you favorite fantastical character.  Can't wait to see you!
