My dad spent the week with us. We celebrated his 80th birthday. What a wonderful visit!
Here’s a photo of him reading the advanced reader’s copy of my new novel.
Dad wasn’t the only one celebrating.

Sharon Creech was speaking and autographing at the bookstore this past Tuesday.
Here’s a photo of Sharon Creech with another excellent writer, my dear friend, Sylvia Andrews (in pink).
And the celebrating didn’t end there.
Our youngest son became a teenager this past weekend. To celebrate his 13th birthday, I took him and a friend to STOMP. What a performance!
Using everything from tape measures to lighters to brooms to – yes – the kitchen sink (literally, filled with water and dishes and pots and pans), they created humor and movement and music that astounded.
These strong, young, imaginative performers are a testament to the magic of the creative spirit.
Here’s hoping you feed your creative spirit, read a good book or two and celebrate someone or something special.
