I get so much from my membership to SCBWI (Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators), that I decided it was time to give back. I’m now serving as the Southern Breeze Chapter ‘s Local Liaison for Decatur, GA. To kick things off, I’ll be hosting a meet and greet schmooze event for Decatur, GA area children’s writers and illustrators on November 9, 2014! If you are a member of SCBWI or interested in learning more about joining, please stop by and have dinner with your neighbors. Details and RSVP to the event—-> here.

Writing in the Mountains

I’m so very excited to have been selected for a Creative Residency this Fall at the beautiful Hambidge Center! Situated on 600 acres in the North Georgia mountains, it’s one of the first artist communities in the United States. I look forward to writing with a view of the forest, streams, meadows, waterfalls and hopefully rare salamanders!
