Happy New Year and back to work!

It was a wonderful vacation but I am getting ready for the new year. I have been working on the sequel to "The Library Dragon ". Carmen has written a great story and now it is my turn! I will keep you in the loop as publication dates get firmed up.
I visited three wonderful schools this past week and I am in Houston, Texas this week-

Odenville Intermediate School in Odenville, Alabama-
I was supposed to do this school in December but we had to reschedule due to icy weather. The day I was there we had huge wind gusts and rain, it was wild! As I was entering the school , the teachers were wondering if I brought the weather with me from Atlanta. We all turned around to look outside and there was a beautiful rainbow. Mrs. Champagne (How could you forget her name!!) and Mr. Banks,the media specialists, were really fun and the students were ready to draw! It truly was a magical day at a great school!

West Jackson Primary in Braselton, Georgia-
The students had watched the video from my website and were ready! They even had a greeting committee for me when I arrived! We did tons of drawings and had a few favorites, too. Mrs.Cariel Lancaster, the media specialist, was a great help and made sure everyone had fun.

Greenbrier Middle School in Evans, Georgia-
This is my third year working with the 6th graders and it is always fun.The students had lots of ideas and were adding lots of story lines to their drawings. Mrs. Hyde loves to sit and draw with her students and she always makes me feel toadally at home at Greenbrier. ( a little pun thrown in)
