Lesley Livingston, Elly Blake, Kristen Ciccarelli and me in the back!

Had a great time hosting the Young Adult panels at Word on the Street in Toronto, and meeting all the fans! Thanks so much for coming out!

I think most of you know that I’m working on a graphic novel version of Jewel of the Thames, and this is the first panel, created in Photoshop (thought I’d stick to my forte ; )

A picture’s worth 332 words

Totally randomly, a friend of a friend posted this image of their miniature Christmas village this morning on Facebook, and I swear, it describes perfectly a scene in No Matter How Improbable: “Annie and I were just exiting a children’s toy store, she having secured ‘the perfect’ wooden train set for her twin brothers. Her father had sent her the money for the purchase, and after several stores, we found an appropriately-priced locomotive.”
