Oh The Places I'll Be...


I can't wait to visit the Centre School in Hampton, New Hampshire in March! It'll be nice to take a break from illustrating and visit with the kids!


It's TAKE YOUR CHILD TO THE LIBRARY DAY at the Portsmouth Public Library.  Please bring the young writers and illustrators in your life to the workshop I'll be leading, LITTLE THOUGHTS, BIG IDEAS.  Sign up is required.  Saturday February 3, 2018 2pm-3:30pm.  We are going to have a lot of fun talking about books and how that come to life!


Please visit the Kennedy Gallery in beautiful downtown Portsmouth, New Hampshire for the month of November 2017 to visit the show DRAW ME A PICTURE.   It is so much fun to see illustrations pop out of their books and onto gallery walls.


My illustrations are in awesome company!  The show includes work from: Tess Feltes, Ryan Higgins, David McPhail, Gina Perry, Robert Squier, and Teri Weidner.

Nottingham School

I'll be reading THE BIG ADVENTURES OF MR. SMALL to the Kindergarten and First Grade to celebrate March is Read Aloud Month!

Stratham Memorial School

What a great visit I had with Mrs. Maher's Kindergarten class!  We ran in a hamster wheel, tried on googly eyes for size, made lots of sound effects and a cool Big Dusty craft.  And they helped me read aloud!  And it snowed!  Such a great day!  Hooray for Kindergarten!

Strawbery Banke Museum

I'll be reading and signing books at the 2nd Annual Children's Author Festival Saturday, November 5, 11am -3pm at the Strawbery Banke Museum in beautiful Portsmouth, New Hampshire.   Last year was great and I think that this year is going to be even better.

New York Public Library Visit

I had a great time reading and speaking to the children and the families of the New York Public Library Chatham Square Branch.  This bustling library in the heart of Chinatown is a home away from home for many who live in this neighborhood. Behind the welcoming red door is an even more welcoming staff and of course, a great, giant dragon awaits you as you ascend the stairs, keeping a close watch on the books and the patrons.

Join me on September 24, 2016 at the Chatham Square Library in the heart of New York City's Chinatown!  This is one of the busiest branches in the whole city!  I can feel the energy already!
