Armchair BEA

I'm totally jumping on this bandwagon late--it always seems to be the way I do these things. For the first time, I'm participating in Armchair BEA. Someday I'd love to attend, maybe when (notice I said "when" not "if") my YA novel comes out. :)

The first question of the week is Who are you and how do you Armchair?

I'm a writer from central Massachusetts. I've published four nonfiction Work-for-Hire titles in the past two years (with four more contracted). I've got a picture book under contract with 4RV Publishing and my agent is getting ready submit my YA novel to editors. I guess you could call my writing varied. LOL. Or really, it's more like I don't like putting all my eggs in one basket. I'm a contributor to Afterglow Book Reviews--check it out, we're having a huge Start of Summer Contest this week.

My blog is a mix of book recommendations, random writing tips, and stops along my writing journey. I'd love to have you look around--and let me know what you think! I honestly don't know how I'm going to Armchair this week. I'm going to try to visit all the participating blogs.

My inspiration comes from my daughter, life in general, and my own childhood. I love making up stories of "what if this had happened instead."

I also organize semi-regular Meet-Ups for writers, illustrators (and anyone else in the childrens publishing world) in the Central Massachusetts area. If you'll be in the area on June 21, join us in Burlington, MA. Location is yet to be determined.

Nice to meet any new followers--I'm going to do my best to keep up this week!
