Ah, Montana

We've arrived at our cabin in the woods in Montana for the holidays - and it's snowing like crazy (perfect) - and cold - like living inside a snow globe. The sled will be out tomorrow, then the snowshoes. In years past we've seen wolves and elk and mountain lions. In a couple of years we should be here year-round. I can't wait.

Starting in the new year I'll be trying to interview authors who are launching books, to bring attention to some great new children's lit. And I'll try and fill you in on what's happening at VCFA, too, when I'm back there for the January residency. I just got my workshop book of ten submissions, and I'm looking forward to reading them!

My novel edits are really humming! And my last packet return from Sarah was wonderful - it made me smile big time. She loves my middle grade, which I finished this semester. I'm keeping my fingers crossed on that one.

Happy Holidays to all - and I wish everyone a joyous New Year.
