Frigid Chicago

This week finds me visiting schools to talk about The Treasure Chest series. Yesterday found me outside Milwaukee, and today and tomorrow I'm in and around Chicago. It's exciting to explain the life of a writer, the birth of the series, and the lives of the historical characters featured in the books to second, third, fourth, and fifth graders. I'm happily ensconced in a Kimpton hotel, right downtown, a warm and cozy respite from chilly Chicago!

I'm going to let you in a little secret: I have finished a draft of my new (adult) novel. it's in the hands of my agent, who will send me comments for revision. And after I do that, it will go to my editor. I am super excited about this one! Stay tuned for details!
