Flowers and Piesgiving

flowers_writingThese lovely, lovely flowers were sent to me by my Madison writers group as congrats on selling my novel to Disney/Hyperion. Aren’t they gorgeous?

Earlier this year, my group got together with some other SCBWI-WI folks and made me a healing quilt. My cats took a liking to the quilt so now it’s hanging up on the wall instead of on my bed to protect it from the little hairy monsters. It still sends off healing vibes, just from a little higher up.


I’m especially fond of the Bridget in a Cake square that Michael Kress-Russik (whose first illustrated book Moon Over the Mountain just came out — check it out here!) made.
My writers group is awesome.

We are celebrating pie this year for Thanksgiving with some Portland friends in a Piesgiving Fest. This involves eating a lot of pie and pie shaped food and watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

Thanks to everyone for all of your support this year and Happy Thanksgiving! Or Piesgiving, if you are so inclined. 🙂

Love to you all,


p.s. Don’t forget the auction is starting up tomorrow. Check out details here.

  1. I hope piesgiving was lots of fun! That reminds me of a party I’ve always wanted to have: a wedgetarian party, where all the food is in wedges. Pizza, quiche, pie, cheese…
