Dakota County Local Author Fair and Other News

I'm so excited to share that I will be supporting Lincoln Place at the first annual Dakota County Local Author Fair on Saturday, January 21 from 1-4pm. Lincoln Place provides supportive housing for young adults who are aging out of foster care, are homeless, or at risk of becoming homeless. I will donate $2. from each sale of Kara, Lost at the event as well as giving out information about Lincoln Place at my table.

Today, an article in the Star and Tribune featured Janet Graber and I. We are both Dakota County authors who will be at the event. The article includes a picture of me at Intermedia Arts, facilitating the Young Writers Group there. We are currently seeking new participants for this fun, drop-in group. Christy Hicks is also a facilitator for the group.

In other news, I have been making good progress with my second book, Chelly's Exposure. 15-year-old Chelly is dealing with her parents' divorce, the loss of a teacher, OCD, behind the wheel practice, and a really cute guy named Cal. It is so great to be working on this project.

In February, I will be speaking to a group of students at South High School in Minneapolis and be featured on Book Snob Blog

It is really exciting to become more involved with writing and community projects. I have so many things that I want to accomplish and I am focusing on taking one step at a time. But I look forward to what's in store.

Thank you for keeping up and please let me know what's on your mind:
