Since my last post, I’ve been a-wandering – Scotland! Ohio! Hawaii! University of Minnesota! Don’t make me say what was best because each trip was one to remember.

And – I have a new job! Last fall, I was offered an opportunity to teach  in a brand-new Library and Information Services program at our local technical college. It took a lot to lure me away from my elementary school library, but in the end,  I was ready for a new challenge. And now I’m about to start teaching my first class next week – Children’s Literature and Services.  I’m so excited to start talking about books and kids with future librarians and library workers!

Writing-wise, Glow has been slowly winning hearts over. It’s added a few more honors and state children’s choice nominations. I especially love the state awards because I know first-hand how fun it is to share the nominees with kids. The state award nominations also mean I’ve been doing some extra Skype chats with classes and libraries as teachers and librarians around the country – please let me know if you’d like to set something up. In the meantime, here’s the updated list:

As always, happy reading!
