Happy Tuesday, everyone!

Woo-HOO, registration is now open for SCBWI MD/DE/WV’s summer regional conference, “Creating Sparks: Kindle the Fire of Imagination!” I’m so excited about this conference because once again, we have an amazing line-up of speakers, including . . .

. . . the lovely Deborah Wiles,whose book, Love, Ruby Valentine, is one of my all-time favorites! (I’ve heard her speak before. She’s such a great motivator!)


. . . the amazingly-talented James Proimos, my friend/mentor/therapist who I love, love, love, and adore and is the author of Knuckle and Potty Destroy Happy World. (So hilarious!)


. . . and finally, our keynote speaker. . . . . . RICHARD PECK! Yeah, I know. RICHARD PECK! He’s one of the reasons why I fell in love with young adult novels, after reading A Long Way To Chicago.


(My other reason is Joan Bauer, after reading Hope Was Here.LOVE that book!)

Anyway, it’s going to be a great conference. For more information and a complete list of speakers, go here. Hope to see you there!

Happy Writing! 🙂
