I had the great pleasure of participating in SCBWI’s first INSIDE STORY Event at the Odyssey Bookshop in South Hadley, MA on Sunday, Nov. 3

There were ten kidlit authors and illustrators in our group, each getting four minutes to share the inside scoop about the ideas or creation of their current books.

It was a lovely event at a fabulous bookstore.  Not a bad way to spend a Sunday!  Not bad at all!
