My posts will be sporadic to non-existent the next few days while I immerse myself in a writing retreat with three of my wonderful Write Sisters: Helen Ketteman, Mary Nethery and Ann Whitford Paul.

My sissies -- Helen, Tricia Gardella, Ann and Mary -- presenting me with the cover of Hattie Big Sky to celebrate my Newbery honor.

Our time together at Shangri-Lar will be filled with walks on the beach, critiquing and reading and the mandatory blended beverage at the end of a hard day of work.

Wish you were here!


  1. Ooooh! I wish I were there, too! Have a great time, all.

  2. Hey, Linda -- it would be AMAZING if you were here!

  3. Me, too! *whine* It does sound loverly. Have a great time!
