Dizzy Visits Ascension

Thanks to Ascension Catholic School for inviting me to their Book Festival. Tonight I read the first chapter of Dizzy to some terrific young readers (including my first fan ever, Nia, as well as her younger sister). They listened respectfully (didn't even throw anything at me) and asked great questions.

Responses to my being there ran the gamut. One sixth-grade girl was so nervous to be with a "real, published author" she couldn't talk. I assured her my seventh-grade students know the truth: that I'm as far from a big deal as people come. So that was one end. On the other end, a student who won during the raffle chose a biography of Justin Bieber over Dizzy Fantastic and Her Flying Bicycle. Hey, I can't compete with those bangs.

Thanks, y'all.

  1. Come to my holiday party.

    Hello Friends!!

    We would like to invite you to our very own Holiday Housewarming Party on Saturday, December 11th at 8pm :) We're all settled into our new apartment, and want to celebrate that accomplishment (:p) plus the holidays with you! This is a classy affair, so dress to impress. Old school jazz, Rat Pack, and christmas music will be a'playin' in the background to set the mood.

    This is a Mixed Drink party, which means that each guest(s) will be asked to bring a bottle of something (not necessarily alcoholic). Dave and I will provide an assortment of mixers to create that drink you've always been wanting to try. There'll even be a prize for the "Best Mixed Drink of the Not-So-Silent Night!" We'll provide some snacks for the evening, and feel free to bring your fav holiday recipe to share ;)

    What: A Holiday Housewarming Party
    Who: You and a Guest
    When: Saturday, December 11, 2010 @ 8pm
