Hope this finds you having an awesome summer. I am preparing for my 40th high school reunion!! I usually don't feel that old, but I hurt my back doing yard work.Then I needed my ears checked for a hearing aid. I figured I'd hobble into my reunion in a walker and a hearing aid the size of Dumbo's ears. But after lots of IcyHot Balm and a low normal hearing range score (I'll need an aid in a few years-which I'm okay with), I'm set for seeing old friends. Let the party begin! Click

Here are 98 books being made into movies right now. Two that I am particularly looking forward to watching are Wonder and A Wrinkle in Time. Click on the book names to see the amazing movie trailers. My favorite line from Wonder is "You can't blend in when you were born to stand out." Both of these movies have incredible casts (think Julia Roberts, Chris Pine, Oprah Winfrey to name just a few). Here are Oprah's thoughts on A Wrinkle in Time.

If you are planning events at your school next year, I hope you'll think of me for an author visit. I am always happy to work with a school's budget. Contact me and we will work out something for you and your students. I am really hoping to make it to Maine, Washington, and Oregon this year-that will make all 50 states for me!
