Visiting Schools

I am really excited because I will be at Mt. Everett Regional High School in Sheffield, MA this Friday, May 1 to talk with students about my novel. Then I will be at Norwich Technical High School in Norwich, C T on the 15th of May talking with those students and I'll be at Monument Mountain High School, in Great Barrington some time in May as well. All these schools have taken Weeping Under This Same Moon as part of their curriculum.

Not only that, but Melody Lea Lamb is going to be working with me on a book about an incredible dog from Warwickshire, England, named Jasmine. More about that later!

I love the country life, but for the past few weeks I've been awakened by a knocking sound at around 4 am. At first I thought it was the radiator knocking, but now I realize that it is a very noisy and persistent woodpecker! What to do?

New Book is Coming!!

Hi All!
My new book, A Free Woman on God's Earth, The True Story of Elizabeth "Mumbet" Freeman, The Slave Who Won Her Freedom (long title, I know) co-written with Ann-Elizabeth Barnes and illustrated by Jacqueline Rogers is due out this August! It's a middle grade chapter book about the life of Mumbet, the amazing woman who sued for her freedom and won in 1781!
I just returned from a wonderful trip to Florida with a couple of friends and am now tan and relaxed and ready to get back to editing and writing!
