SOON TO BE ANNOUNCED
After many years of hard work, I am thrilled that my chameleon character, QUINCY, will come to life in his own book! I'm not supposed to discuss the details yet–but the publication date is Spring 2018!

PROSPECT AGENCY

My agent, Rachel Orr, and I were part of a panel discussion at the Rutgers University Council on Children's Literature One-on-One Conference on October 15th, 2016. The theme was "Tough Love: An Agent's Role in Today's Market." But really, working with Rachel feels like anything but tough love. At first I was nervous, but soon loved talking to a roomful of peers about my publishing experiences–and reasons why a good agent is so helpful!

WATERCOLOR AWARDS

My watercolor, "Moment Before Opening," was juried into the Salmagundi Non Members show. This painting also won the "Bernice & Albert B. Cohen Family Trust Award for Excellence in Light and Shadow" in the 2016 New England Watercolor Society's Signature Member Art Show. It also won first place and the "Domenic DiStefano Memorial Award" at the annual "Works on Paper" show at the Philadelphia Sketch Club. The painting will be featured on the postcard for the next "Works on Paper" exhibition in 2017.

I won't know until January 2017 if it was able to make it into the American Watercolor Society. Cross your fingers!
