Happy New Year






2013 was a good year, a great year actually.

I completed Dr. Mira Reisberg’s Picture Book Academy and Marsha Diane Arnold and Dr. Mira Reisberg’s Writing Wonderful Character Driven Picture Books courses. Taking these courses was one of the best things I could have ever done for my writing career. Through the PB Academy course, I became part of an inspiring community, made some wonderful friends and formed a critique group with some very talented writers.

In October I was selected to receive a one-on-one critique at our AZ SCBWI conference with a brilliant editor.

Then to end the year in the most amazing way possible…my holiday mishap story ‘Twas the Night Baafore Christmas won first place in Susanna Leonard Hill’s 3rd annual Holiday story contest.

bean1This post is about celebrating! Celebrating a bit of success after years and years of working hard to become a better writer!

Here’s to 2014…can’t wait to see what happens!
