SCBWI Author/Illustrator Panel

Featuring: Bethanie Murguia & Emma Bland Smith

What questions do you need to ask yourself to do your best work? As an author and illustrator, Bethanie will speak about finding the right words, the right images, and the ideal marriage of the two for your story. She will use her own books as well as favorites from other authors as case studies. This talk will be appropriate for both writers and illustrators.

Cockatoo, Too Launch Party!

Please save the date of January 9th to celebrate COCKATOO, TOO. l'll be at the wonderful, cozy Diesel Bookstore (Larkspur Landing) with tutus, boas, and a real live cockatoo to welcome this book and its wacky dancing birds to the world. Please join me.

COCKATOO, TOO has received a starred review from Kirkus who called it "delightfully hilarious" and "sure to become a read-aloud favorite".
