I am ecstatic to share that one of my picture book manuscripts, Cason’s Open Hands, received third place in the 2014 5th Annual SCBWI Carolinas Art and Writing Contest!
I have also been accepted to the 2015 SCBWI Carolinas Mentorship program and am honored to be working with Kristy Dempsey for the first half of 2015!
I’m also honored to have been a Cybils judge for 2014-2015! The Cybils awards are the Children’s and Young Adult Bloggers’ Literacy Awards. I served as a Round 1 judge for the the Easy Reader/Early Chapter Book category. Look for more book talk on Twitter, Instagram, and the Cybils blog!
