A Face for Radio

Last night I was a guest on a local radio program, WSTU 1450 because I am helping sponsor a local women's film festival called LUNAFEST.

The event's goal of promoting women and their communities aligns perfectly with the feisty, "you go girl!" spirit of LUCY LOVES SHERMAN, so participating was a no brainer! 

The interview was also broadcast on Facebook Live and affiliated You Tube stations. It was so much fun and I'm grateful for the opportunity to chat about MIND YOUR MONSTERS, HYPNOSIS HARRY and the forthcoming LUCY LOVES SHERMAN.

The event is being hosted by the Junior League of Martin County, and for more, please visit:

It’s February and love is in the air. So I wrote a poem for you. 

Lobsters are red.
Water is teal. 
I hope that you love 
my Cover Reveal! 

Okay, so water isn’t really teal – but I do have the final, 
super official cover for LUCY LOVES SHERMAN to share with you. 

Ta Da! Consider it an early Valentine’s Day Gift. 

And here is an adorable video made by 
the amazing illustrator, Meg Walters, showing the new cover:


And for more splashy treats, please swim on over to Tara Lazar’s website for an interview with yours truly, and amazing illustrator, Meg Walters. There is a free giveaway, and the link is:

Camp Read-A-Lot

Another day, another book event :) Thank you so much to the utterly amazing staff of Citrus Grove Elementary! I was so flattered to be the the only author at your Camp Read-A-Lot. Between the presentations, the book fair, and the bonfire I was in Author Visit Heaven! (And yes, I came home and made s'mores in the microwave.)
You guys are so always awesome to work with. Thank you again.

Kicking off the weekend with the arrival of my splashy LUCY LOVES SHERMAN bookmarks! If anyone asks I'll play it cool and say I ordered 100. (But I think we all know that means 1,000.)
