While I Was Away

While I was away overseas for the last month, I completely unplugged - no phone, email, or online news - and it was absolute bliss! Now that I've returned and am getting back into the swing of things, I discovered that the story I am working on was shortlisted and highly commended in the Illustrations: Illustrated Picture Books category at this year's Children's and Young Adult Writers and Illustrators (CYA) Conference. Here's the main character from that work-in-progress dancing a celebratory jig. A very belated thank you to everyone at CYA!
