I just came back from an amazing Author Day at Lenape Elementary School in New Paltz. About 300 students, third and fourth grade, attended. I read from the book, answered a lot of questions and signed many objects like napkins, pieces of scrap paper, business cards, rubber balls, baseball hats, sneakers, T-Shirts,lunch boxes, a dollar bill and arms. Many, many arms. Also, I didn’t know that my name would fit on the inside of a sneaker but it did!! If the students had as much fun as I did, they had a blast for sure!!
To the students at Lenape who attended this: YOU WERE AWESOME!! I hope all your dreams come true. Don’t forget, if you want to become a writer, read, read, read!! Drop me a note and don’t forget to draw your favorite character and scene and send it to me. If you don’t have my address, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll email it back to you. Also, if you want me to email you when the other books come out, you can sign up on the right side of this page.
Best of luck,
