I've LOVED Scholastic's Storyworks Magazine since our boys were in elementary school and I'd steal, um, borrow their copies. Great stories, poetry, non-fiction, word games, etc.
When I discovered that the author of a delightful novel, Emma Jean Lazarus Fell Out of a Tree, was also the editor of Storyworks Magazine, I had to write to the amazing Lauren Tarshis.
Next thing I knew, Lauren had enjoyed my first book and I found myself writing a short story for Storyworks Magazine. It appeared in their October issue. I love the layout and artwork. And I'm so proud to have my work in this publication. Thank you, Lauren!
Later, I found out How to Survive Middle School was the 2nd bestseller in middle grade books for Scholastic Book Clubs. It ranked higher than James Patterson's middle school book. Check it out!
Halloween gives me a chance to combine two favorite things -- food and spooky stuff. Here are a few ghoulish goodies:
Decorations in the hood:
|Skeleton, Florida Style|
|The Raven . . . and the Lizard|
Now, for the scariest thing of all:
HOPE YOU ALL HAD A HALLOWEEN TO DISMEMBER, ER, REMEMBER!
