Summer. And then after that, Fall.


This will be a pretty quiet summer.

I'll be at the Sharon Summer Book Signing on July 31st. Please come if you're around. This event supports a beautiful town library with a wonderful and dedicated staff.

This FALL, however, will be unquiet. Fall holds many things, including (tentatively) trips to Boston, Seattle, Houston, Kansas City, Chicago, San Francisco, Austin, Dallas, and Minneapolis.

Many of these events will be with writers of books I admire enormously. Obviously these are the best kind of events. I'll provide details as soon as I can.

My new book, Goodbye Stranger, will be published on August 4th - many of the reviews are in. (You may need to scroll down.)

I hope your summer is off to a glowing start. Today I caught my first whiff of what I call "urban summer garbage." Not pleasant, but it's part of the deal.

Fun fact: At one point during the writing of Goodbye Stranger,
I became very interested in this chicken phone charm.
I still consider it a sad failure of imagination that I couldn't get it into the book. 

Luckily, I did get a lot of other weird stuff in.

I haven't ever read any of your books, but I just read the About Me section of your website, and I like you already. I am just about to start When You Reach Me. I also have two fabulous sons. :) Oh, and that chicken phone charm is great.
