Authorial Endeavor #017. I’m feeling a little nostalgic this morning. When we moved into our first little house in Western Michigan, I was expecting my third child. Time flies, and boys grow. He’s a lanky teen of 6’5″ now, and our years of country living are fond memories that helped shape Prissie’s world. Very much to my delight, a friend from those years reconnected with me this week.

Grandma’s Cookie Jar is hosting a giveaway of signed copies of The Blue Door, and those who enter the drawing can also sign up to receive postcards of story art! Make sure to head over and read the whole article. And look forward to next week, when she’ll be reviewing The Hidden Deep and sharing an authorial interview! Look forward to it!
