First of all, thanks to Katie at Katie's Literature Lounge for including Hop! Plop! in her new feature, Mailbox Monday.
Second, thanks to Tara Lazar for interviewing me as part of her "Love a Kidlit Author Month." Check out Tara's most recent interview: Aaron Zenz, Inside the Creative Mind of a Rising Author/Illustrator. You can also enter to win a signed four-book set of the Howie I Can Read series.
Last, thanks to my darling husband for being so tolerant as I abandon ALL household chores in order to focus obsessively on my new rhyming PB manuscript. David and I realized long ago that the only way to motivate me to do any cooking or cleaning was to give me grades (Ha! My friends from high school will get it :) And I know I deserve D's and F's this week. Sorry, honey. I love you! But don't worry... I should have the meter ironed out soon. And then I can return to my normal level of house management (Thank God, I set the bar very low)
