Babyberry giveaway

How about starting off the new year with a new book?

Head on over to Stiletto Storytime and enter the giveaway contest for a copy of my picture book BABYBERRY PIE!

If you hurry, there might be time to enter for tonight’s drawing of ALL FOUR MOTHER-DAUGHTER BOOK CLUB titles!  That’s right — The Mother-Daughter Book Club, Much Ado About Anne, Dear Pen Pal, and Pies & Prejudice, too!  WOW!

She’s 235 today…

… but she’s as ageless as her wonderful books!

Jane Austen

My friend and fellow fan of all things Jane over at Stiletto Storytime invited me to contribute a guest blog to help celebrate this most auspicious of birthdays, as well as her own fourth blogoversary.  An honor indeed.  Thanks, Courtney!  And congratulations on four wonderful years of blogging!

Calling all young Portland writers!

Want to learn how to create characters so real they walk off the page?

Head on down to Powell’s Books at Cedar Hills Crossing (Beaverton) this coming Friday afternoon, December 10th, at 4:30 p.m.  I’ll be teaching a writing workshop with my friend and fellow author April Henry aimed at aspiring authors between the ages of 10 and 18.

There’ll be a book signing afterwards, too!  Hope to see you there!
