Tweens Read, Texas Book Festival, and more!

Hi, y’all! I am incredibly excited to share a few cool events I’m going to be at this fall. The first one is a conference I’ve been dying to attend for years – the amazing Tweens Read in Pasadena, Texas. It’s at South Houston High School, THIS Saturday, and keynote speakers are Katherine Applegate, Gene Luen Yang, and  Rebecca Stead.


My panel, called Edge of Your Seat, will be running all day. And the other authors on it? Incredible!

Christina Diaz Gonzalez – Her book, Moving Target, is one of my favorite fast-paced MGs this year!
Jennifer Nielsen – Author of The False Prince and others, will talk about her new historical,  A Night Divided. I’m reading this now, and it’s SO HARD not to ignore all my work and read instead. SO GOOD.
Jackson Pearce – Author of amazing YA fairy tale retellings (um, yes, I may have a thing for these myself! She does them exquisitely) will present her new  Doublecross

Kevin Sands – Author of the brand new The Blackthorn Key, that gets a HUGE thumbs up from my own 12 y.o. reader: “As good as The False Prince and The Lightning Thief.” Wow.

I’m thrilled to have the chance to speak with these authors, and see other friends like Ingrid Law, Crystal Allen, and Polly Holyoke. It will be a great day. So, I hope to see you at this event if you live anywhere near Houston! Make sure to preregister here.

Later in October, I’ll be at the Texas Book Festival, presenting on a panel on Sunday, October 18 at noon, with authors Nick Courage and Rebecca Stead. Signing to follow!


More later… I have a book I’m trying to write. I say “trying” because I’m eating healthy these days, and you know what that means. BTW, friends? Writing is hard. Writing without chocolate?

Almost impossible.
