Last Wednesday was the annual Children’s Writer-in-Residence reception at the Boston Public Library, where last year’s fellow, Elaine Dimopoulos, presented her finished manuscript, and I was introduced as the new. It was absolutely wonderful, I met some positively lovely people, and I am even more excited for the next seven and a half months!
The reception was covered by the Boston Globe and I was surprised to see my face in the “Names” (celebrity) section on Friday, sharing the page with Sting and Hugh Jackman. I have to admit, this makes me feel pretty darn cool.
Also, Under the Apple Tree is going strong in its serialization online. The first chapter has finished and the plot is starting to pick up. Go read it, you know you want to:
