Go to the WNDB Indiegogo Campaign!

WeNeedDiverseBooks, whose advisory board I am proud to say I am a part of,  has just launched its Indiegogo Campaign! Please consider donating!

You'll have to find out...). Or you could have dinner with the incredible Jacqueline Woodson in Park Slope or a signed Dav Pilkey print or even more! Lots of fun prizes, go check it out!

Please spread the word!

Just in case you missed it!

Just in case you missed it in my last newsletter (sign up HERE to get on the list)...


Ling and Ting: Twice as Silly is coming! Pre-order your copy  (and/or any other books by me) at my local bookstore, Broadside Books,  and I will autograph the book plus include a surprise small gift (maybe a magnet...maybe a pin...maybe a pocket pacy! You'll have to see what you get!).


You can pre-order a personalized autographed copy HERE , just add to whom you'd like the book to be autographed to in the "order comments" section at checkout. 

Or you can call Broadside Books at 413-584-4235 and place your order over the phone!

Not only will you receive the surprise gift from me (I promise it will be nice!), you'll be supporting a great local independent bookstore! You may remember from my last newsletter that Amazon is in dispute with my publisher, so they are not shipping my books out in a timely manner. This, unfortunately, makes it quite difficult for my new book (or really any of my books) to be successful. 

 So, please, please consider supporting this bookstore or any other bookstore near you!
