I applied to see if I could be a Featured Artist on the Society of Children Book's Writers and Illustrators probably months ago... and I am lucky enough to have a link now for just that!
Thank you SCBWI !! I don't deserve it! Thank you so much!


I am posting because I am excited to announce that I have been invited to participate in William Howard Taft High School in Woodland Hills, CA's Passport to Reading event on April 5th, 2008 Saturday. Barnes and Noble is apparently going to be the book distributor that day as well!
This is totally exciting and a great opportunity.
I also have my third signing lined up for March 3rd for Read Across America at Bret Harte Elementary in Long Beach, CA.

I have file created for a black and white coloring page so if anyone ever wants the file to use for signings or their little ones, email me and I would be happy to send the file.
Unrelated to the topic, I have been working on a comic on the side and almost done with the ten pages I thought to finish before sending this out for possible publication. One day I hope to have it posted with a short description or story synopsis for those interested.
Thanks for all the support!

I have updated my profile to have my email address on my profile because I have been getting emails from possible clients. I hope that helps for anyone else trying to reach me for whatever reason.
I've also had a few book signings at some schools recently. The first one was at University Park Elementary in Irvine, CA. Thank you Janet Wykert for getting interested and letting me come see all the students there. Josh took some photos on his phone because we forgot the camera but they aren't enough of high quality to place online.
The second signing was with Nancy Wride at Belmont Elementary. This was reviewed on their district's main webpage. I'll list some url's to copy and paste so people can check them out.
Anyway, thank you for reading my story and supporting me!
