Did a really fun author panel and solo presentation for Festival of Words Delaware.

The chat I had with my author-buddy Wade Bradford was maybe my favorite interview to date!
Wade does a segment he calls "Your Very Own Game Show" - where he creates a game show based on three subject you give him. SO fun!

The CURSED launch!

I had an absolute BLAST at my book launch events, both in the Los Angeles area, where I live now, and in Philadelphia, where I grew up and where Cursed is set.

My book signing at Children's Book World in West Los Angeles was SRO.


Photographic evidence of dreams coming true:

Signing a copy of Cursed for YA author Sonya Sones who I've long admired.
