Reading, Friends & Fun

Had a great time with my buddies, Olugbemisola Rhuday-Perkovich, author of 8th Grade Super Zero and Torrey Maldonado, author of Secret Saturdays at our book signing at B & N in Brooklyn. I heart them both!

The next day I visited my childhood library-- The Red Hook Library in Brooklyn. I can't tell you how happy I was to be there. As a kid, I spent a lot of time there sniffing in that gorgeous book smell and peeking underneath the plastic book covers to see what the 'real' covers looked like. AND now, my book sits on those same shelves! A big thank you to Donna and the staff for inviting me!
Can you tell how much fun I had?


  1. I love these photos! (fellow NYer here)

    I won Trouble With Half a Moon earlier this year with a lovely signed copy from you and I'm so grateful. I listed it as a choice for my students to read (I tutor) and one of my girl students picked it! I'm so happy to introduce her to this book.

  2. Yay! I'm sooo happy you liked TROUBLE!Thank you for letting me know. You've made my day!

    I hope your student likes it as well. :D
