Upcoming Event: YA Panel at Porter Square Books on July 17th!

Summer might seem like a long time away, especially for those of us in the Boston area who are still surviving the coldest/snowiest winter ever. Fortunately, I’m looking forward to a July 17, when I’ll be on a YA panel with several other 2014/2015 debut authors! The details:

Friday Fifteen

Happy Friday, everyone! It’s also the last Friday in February, and I’m hopeful March won’t bring quite as much soul-crushing snow. Here’s a look at what I’ve been reading and writing, in fifteen words or under:

Reading: El Deafo by Cece Bell
Just as honest, funny, and adorable as I’d hoped. Little me would have loved it!

Writing: “Resolution: a/ Girl needs a best friend, and mine/ Is so the best one.”
My WIP includes lots of haiku and friendship feelings.

Friday Fifteen

Somehow it’s already Friday? Not that I’m complaining, but it kind of snuck up on me. Here’s to a weekend of keeping warm and reading lots of books! To start us off, a look at what I’ve been reading and writing in fifteen words or under.

ReadingBreathe, Annie, Breathe by Miranda Kenneally
Quiet, touching; I didn’t want to leave these characters behind. Also appreciated the summery feeling.

Writing: “Just wrap my body in this blanket and give me a proper burial at sea.”
Loving my melodramatic WIP character.

Friday Fifteen

This was a short week thanks to a couple of snow days, and I am still so relieved to see Friday. Let’s go into the weekend with a look at what I’ve been reading and writing, in fifteen words or under.

ReadingThe Boy in the Black Suit by Jason Reynolds
Touching and gentle and real. First time I teared up at a list of recipes.

Writing: “It made me want to punch Thomas Jefferson for agreeing to the Louisiana Purchase.”
Really enjoying the voice of one of my WIP protagonists.

Happy almost Valentine’s Day, everyone!
