Nature's Patchwork Quilt Mini Review

A new book from Dawn Publications, this book exemplifies the wonders of nature. It explores habitats of the world. The illustrations are detailed and varied, full of life! I recommend this book to children who want to study about creatures and where they live. Here's an excerpt:
                                                  A patchwork quilt
                                                  has many pieces that
                                                  fit together to make
                                                  a beautiful blanket.

                                                  Nature is like a patchwork quilt.
                                                  It has many different habitats
                                                  all pieced together to create
                                                  our wonderful planet.

At the Writer's Intensive Roundtable in New York

I presented my manuscript to nine people. It was an exciting experience to have my work critiqued by my peers and an editor. Teatime with Harmony Hen received a good revision. I hope to send it out to publishers soon!

More Pictures from the Conference in New York

Lin Oliver, the president and founder of SCBWI, signs a copy of my book Hank Zipzer by Henry Winkler and Lin Oliver. The book was a great read and Lin was even greater. She is an adorable woman. I told her so in person. I hope I see her again in Los Angeles.

Another highlight was when Jane Yolen signed my book Pretty Princess Pig and How Do Dinosaurs Say Goodnight? Heidi E. Y. Stemple signed the first book which she authored with Jane.

More highlights to come...
