A post-Pitch Wars interview with me and my marvelous mentor, Rebecca Petruck, is up on her blog. Swing by for a peek behind the scenes and learn what it’s like to be a mentor and a mentee.

Rebecca is the author of STEERING TOWARD NORMAL (2014) and the forthcoming WILL NOLAN EATS BUGS (Fall 2017). She also teaches a phenomenal Plot Your Novel Workshop in person and online. Rebecca is whip-smart, challenging, hardworking, encouraging, generous, and kind. She’s also funny! I couldn’t have wished for a better mentor.

I will forever be thankful for Rebecca, Brenda Drake, and the rest of the Pitch Wars community for this incredible experience.

One of my collages—previously posted under “Let’s Make Magic”—has been selected to help promote Kansas SCBWI’s fall conference! It will be featured alongside illustrations by Lissa Sloan and Karen B. Jones. I am honored to share the experience with these talented ladies.

You can preview the conference art (and sneak a peek at the faculty line-up) here in the summer newsletter. My illustration is on page three. Hooray!
