Hi everyone! I’m organizing another networking/diversity event for the kidlit folks in the Boston area. This time I’m doing a Meet and Greet for IBPOC writers and illustrators on behalf of the NESCBWI Equity and Inclusion committee. You do not need to be an NESCBWI member to join us. I hope to see you there!

Date: Thursday, December 5, 2019 – 7:00pm

Address: Trident Booksellers and Café, 338 Newbury Street, Boston, MA 02115

Description: This is a casual meetup for YA and children’s writers and/or illustrators who identify as Indigenous, Black, and/or People of Color (IBPOC). Other IBPOC children’s literature professionals are also invited and welcome. This will not be a pitching event.


Whoops, it’s been a while since I last posted! I’ve been slowly sharing photos from our family trip to India on my instagram account. We were there for two weeks in the middle of August, and we visited Delhi, Jaipur, Pushkar, and Jodhpur. Originally we were supposed go to Delhi and then fly down to Kochi and travel around to Thekkady as we did last time. But unfortunately due to dangerous weather, we had to reroute our trip at the last minute (thanks Mom for organizing all of it!).

Between the four of us adults on the trip we took about 1200 photos 😳so it has been taking me a while to sift through them. Hopefully I’ll be done posting the pics before next August…

Hope you enjoy!

HI! It’s been a while since I’ve posted. I’ve been busy with revisions on my latest middle grade manuscript. I just sent another round of revisions out to my agent, and am waiting for her notes. I’m hoping to be nearing submission to publishers soon! Until then, I’m still plugging away on the MG science fiction project.

Travels: If you follow me on instagram, you saw a couple of pics from my trip to Brussels and Bruges as well as our family trip to Universal Studios in FL. I’ll be traveling to India soon too! It’s been 10 years since the last time I visited, and I’m eager to see what changes I will notice. We plan to travel to Delhi, Agra, and Kochi. It’ll be the first time for my kids, and I’m a bit nervous to see how they handle the long, boring flights as well as the huge time difference.

Wish us luck!
