This Saturday, 5/16, is Kids Otter Read day around Northern California. A day when local authors and illustrators connect up with local independent bookstores in a community wide celebration of children's books.

I will be reading from Hugging the Rock at Books Inc. in Palo Alto at 2:40pm

Here's the full schedule:

Betsy Franco 1 - 1:25
Jim LaMarche 1:25 - 1:50
Dorina Lazo Gilmore 1:50-2:15
Cynthia Chin-Lee 2:15-2:40

Oh, my small one is a FREAK for otters. I wish I could zoom us to the Bay for the day. Darn time-space continuum.

Susan -- I'm getting Hugging the Rock for a good friend of mine who is just now processing being left by her mother as a little girl. Her own parenting experience is bringing up a whole host of questions and I think your book will be a comfort to her...

Oh I love the otters too! They are our symbol here with the Northern CA Children's Booksellers Association.

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
