Two Upcoming Events

IMG_4267I will be participating in the Beaver County Bookfest on Saturday, September 9, 2017, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. (1600 for you military types). I’m looking forward to meeting book lovers from the region and see my good friends, authors Stephanie Keyes and Joshua David Bellin. I hope to see you there!

I will also, along with my usual partners in crime, Stephanie and Josh, be presenting in a workshop from our wonderful Western Pennsylvania SCBWI (Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators). Along with author Leah Pileggi, each of us will be presenting for an hour on different areas to hone your manuscript during revision. I will be speaking on the neuroscience of how our brains react to fiction, and what authors should do to maximize the brain’s ability to engage with story. The workshop will be held on the campus of Carnegie Mellon University on Saturday, September 23, 2017. For more information, visit Honing Your Manuscript and Heading to Success
