40 Years Ago!

It’s hard for me to believe, but it’s forty years, almost to the day, since my first book was published.  Viking stuck it on its adult list, but I wrote it for kids, and luckily it was reviewed that way.

Oh, Rats! is to be published on the fall 2019 list.  We’ve found a wonderful illustrator, from Australia, named Gabriel Evans, and with the help of my brilliant editor, Caitlyn Dlouhy, the book is rounding into excellent shape.  I’m very excited about it.

Progress report

Well, Simon & Schuster (Atheneum) are going to publish the new book.  I’m thrilled.  It may take a while, as it needs some illustrating, but as soon as there’s a pub date I’ll let you know.

Progress report

The aforementioned book about a squirrel has made it over the first obstacle.  My wonderful agent, Holly McGhee, is enthusiastic about it.  Now it’s with Simon & Schuster.  I’ll let you know when they weigh in.

Checking in

Sorry for the long silence.  Since the previous post I’ve been working fairly hard on a story about a squirrel.  It’s set in New Jersey and New York City and is nearly done.

Update

I wondered when I created this website if I would ever blog, and it seems I don’t.  But I’m determined to do better.  Mostly I’ve been preoccupied with a new project.  More soon.

A nice review of Firstborn in Booklist.  Though the reviewer takes a swipe at the title.  Hmm.
