my bookshelf

I think all writers get asked (a lot) about what they’re reading. So, I decided to add a bookshelf section with a quick look at my current kidlit reads. Sometimes, I also do reader reactions (not really reviews, but more, “why I’m loving it!”) in fins down!

I came home from the New York City SCBWI 2019 with this great stack of new reads!
