Book Festival Update!

 Here I am with Guadalupe Garcia McCall at the prefestival dinner at Johnny Carino's.  She was so fun!  I was expecting someone more serious after reading Under the Mesquite, but she is so fun and high energy!
 Here I am with Crystal Allen and Guadalupe Garcia McCall.  These two are a hoot!  We were all laughing so hard the rest of the people in the restaurant were staring at us, but we did not care.  Plus, Crystal Allen knows Neal Shusterman in real life, not just in a stalkery way like I do.  He is her mentor; how cool is that!?
This is Gordon Korman (OMG) and CyWoods librarian, Terrie Schexnaider.  Y'all, I had dinner with GORDON KORMAN!
 Diana Lopez was also great.  I can't wait to read Ask My Mood Ring How I Feel!  I sense a spring break read coming on.  :)
 And here is a photo of Tim Green and me together.  That's right.  Tim Green and me.  Together.  I know you're jealous!
Doesn't Wendelin Van Draanen look so fun in this picture.  I LOVED meeting her!  Y'all know The Running Dream is one of my all time favorites.  Plus, she was wearing purple Converse sneakers--my favorite shoe in my favorite color.  I knew we were kindred spirits!  :)


  1. Love the way you pulled all these parts together! And I loved meeting you, too! Thanks again for all your hard work, and for including me in your wonderful festival.

  2. I never check the comments because I almost never get any. I just saw this today. Thanks! :)
