The year has flown by. I'm thankful for all my writing friends and readers. Like they say, the older you get, time goes faster. This semester (teachers always think in semesters, eh?) I'm thankful a book deal was announced which was actually sold almost a year ago to Penguin Random House's Christian imprint, Waterbrook Multnomah.
I just received sketches of God's Little Astronomer, and I'm in love. I can't wait for you to see this one. And I'm working on book 2, will send the first draft to my editor this coming week.
I've been drafting new picture book stories and one new middle grade novel. We'll see if they ever make it into the literary world. A month ago I did a virtual author visit with an international school in Korea. Surprisingly, a couple of students that I had taught in kindergarten now attend this other school. It was wonderful to talk to them!
In 2024, my first middle grade lyrical graphic novel, The Other Side of Tomorrow, should publish. I love when illustrator Deb JJ Lee posts glimpses of it on social media. Here's the main character in a North Korean setting.
My Thanksgiving break is almost over. I want to leave you with a prayer of blessing because of all that's going on in the world and our families. Know that God loves you & cares for you and yours.
"The Lord bless you
and keep you;
25 the Lord make his face shine on you
and be gracious to you;
26 the Lord turn his face toward you
and give you peace.”
