It was wonderful to have an opportunity to rub elbows with outstanding children’s book writers and illustrators this past weekend. The SCBWI events never disappoint and in fact leave you with an uplifted writing spirit. I was fortunate to sell my book during the Members Book Sale along side Jennifer J. Chow, author of Dragonfly Dreams and A.E. Conran, author of The Lost Celt. Both ladies were supportive and entertaining. Listening to them providing insights into their books as they engaged with passer-bys was exciting and made me happy to be amongst writers who believe in their work and share it with pride.
