And her name is…

And Her Name Is LunaThank you to everyone who helped name this cute Beanie Boo that represents a little owl in my newest Middle Grade project. And a big thanks to ANDI RODGERS MCDONALD for suggesting it. I think it’s perfect and the heroine of the story, Grace, would for sure pick that name so it’s GREAT!

You guys are rock stars. Thanks for sharing this crazy writing journey with me!

Name my owl!

Alastair and Owl
If you follow me on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook, surely you’ve met Alastair. He’s my little buddy who hangs out with me…pretty much everywhere. He’s in a Middle Grade series I’m working on called Realm Jumpers.

Well, I’ve started a new series. The working title (which will more than likely change) is A Pirate’s Grace.

And yes…there’s an owl in it!

She just made her appearance in the story so I figured I’d come to you guys for help with a name!

I don’t have an official blurb about the book yet, but here’s a quick look in case that helps with picking out a name:

A Pirate’s Grace is about about an eleven-year-old “pirate in training” and the thrilling adventure he stumbles into when he rescues a mysterious girl from the sea who claims she fell into his world through the pirate book she was reading.

So, if you have any ideas…leave them in the comments. Who knows, I might just use the one you suggest!

Happy reading,

#RT15 was a blast

I had a GREAT time at RT this year. Got to meet so many new people!! The highlight, I think, though, is that I got to finally meet my super agent in person! To give her a hug in person…amazing. Totally worth it.

I got to meet up with Wendy Russo, Kary Rader, and Rachel Firasek, fellow CMP authors I’ve known for years, but just now got to give hugs! It’s all kinds of awesome.

Here are some pictures. And because I don’t know how to put them in order from day one to day five…they are in random order. LOL.

I had a blast. Big thanks to the Hyatt for taking great care of us with awesome room, good food, and great customer service. RT for putting on a fantastic program of classes and times to interact with readers.

Until next time…Happy reading, my friends!
