I am home from the Asilomar conference and beyond busy. Will post a memory challenge later but simply had to shout out CONGRATULATIONS to fellow critique member Bonny Becker for winning the SCBWI Golden Kite Award for her charming NYT bestselling picture boook, A Vistor for Bear.

Congrats to all the other winners too. Another favorite book of mine, The Adoration of Jenna Fox also won....yahoo to Mary Pearson!

There are so many stories only you can tell.Tell them, please.

Golden Kite!
I love this book...and am thrilled for the other winners. If it was warmer I would go fly a kite in Brooklyn's Prosect Park in celebration.

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
