Guest Blog Post: Kirby Larson’s Friend Friday!

One of my favorite things about being an author is the chance to meet (even if it’s only online) some of the world’s nicest, smartest, and most generous writers. Today, I have the great pleasure to be the guest post-er on Kirby Larson’s blog – yes, THAT Kirby, as in, the author of Hattie Big Sky, The Friendship Doll, Dash, and so many others. I wrote a little about Wish Girl, a little about my messy desk, and a lot about why I write these books with such thorny, dark parts for kids to read.

I hope you hop over to read! And thank you, Kirby, for calling me friend, and showing such kindness.

If you’re tired of reading about Wish Girl (could that ever happen? haha), check out Karen McCoy’s blog, where I give a few middle grade magical realism reading recommendations!

I’m off to celebrate Easter now… with a big trip to the huge AWP conference in Minneapolis (and school visits) scheduled for next week. And TLA after that! I’d better start packing.

Y’all have a great weekend!
