Thank you, Norman rockwell Elementary in Redmond, WA!
I joined Matt de la Pena, Laura Vacarro Seeger, Kimberly Willis Holt, Brad Herzog, Suzanne Morgan Williams and dozens of other amazing authors and educators this weekend -- Friday and Saturday, February 27 and 28, 2016 -- at the Nevada Reading Week Conference! I also got to visit Roy Gomm Elementary in Reno, and both events were wonderful. Thank you, Reno!
new from Darby Creek/Lerner: a TWO book series!
Kids often ask me, "What would you do if you met Sasquatch?"
LOOKING FOR OTHER WORLDLY EXPERIENCES?
Great! My new book, GHOSTLY EVIDENCE from Millbrook Press at Lerner is now available. Explore the basics of paranormal investigation. Explore world famous haunted places and places you've never considered before. Review world famous hoaxes and moments hard to define as anything but mysterious. You can even consider the ghostly moments I experience myself during four years of cross country investigation (see YouTube video below)! The book may give you goose bumps, but it will definitely give you food for afterlife thought!
