Taking a tip from janni who recently created azkidwriters for Arizona children's authors as well as remembering that kidlit_kim did the same thing with kidlit_central I created a community for California authors & illustrators at cakidlit
I'm not trying to take folks away from their regular blogging. California is a big state (we have 3 SCBWI regions) filled with children's authors and illustrators blogging all over the kidlitosphere. I wanted to give us a gathering place that was not affiiliated with any orgnaization. Published and unpublished writers are both welcome. Authors, illustrators, local booksellers, reviewers, anyone with an interest in California authors of chidlren's literature. So check out cakidlit and let us know who you are and what you're up to lately. Ack - edited to fix a misdirected link. My apologies if I sent some of you off on a wild goose chase. Unless of course you caught the goose and it was golden. Then cheers!

Who am I?I was born on the Cancer/Leo cusp and share a birthday with Ernest Hemingway and Robin Williams. The similarities don't stop there as I can go from depressed to ecstatic without ever passing go. I feel scared most of the time though my friends call me brave and I find it easier to believe in my friends than to believe in my own abilities to make what I want out of my life.

Who am I? A wife, a mother, a daughter, and even, gulp, a grandmother.

Who am I? A writer who never gets tired of playing with words, even when the words are hard to find. A writer of books for children and articles for grown-ups and many things in-between.

Who am I? A motivational speaker, writing instructor, workshop leader and full-time follower of dreams.

Who am I? Read and find out.

"Successful writers are not the ones who write the best sentences. They are the ones who keep writing. They are the ones who discover what is most important and strangest and most pleasurable in themselves, and keep believing in the value of their work, despite the difficulties."
--Bonnie Friedman

"As writers, we must be willing to feel our sadness, our anger, our terror, so we can reach in and find our sweet vulnerability that is just sitting there waiting for us to come back home."
--Nancy Slonim Aronie

"Writers write about what obsesses them. You draw those cards. I lost my mother when I was 14. My daughter died at the age of 6. I lost my faith as a Catholic. When I'm writing, the darkness is always there. I go where the pain is."
--Anne Rice
