Hello my fine and delightful friends!
This of course is all leading up to the release of my two new books this August 1st! (TWO!)
My new YA Novel ROSE SEES RED (scholastic press) – Set in New York in the 1980s, this story of two ballet dancers (one American, one Russian) recounts the unforgettable night they spend in the city, and celebrates the friendship they form despite their cultural and political differences.
and my very first picture book GRANDMA’S GLOVE (candlewick press) – Grandma is always on her knees in the dirt, with her gardening gloves on, talking to her roses and laughing with the birds-of-paradise. A day comes when Grandma is no longer there to care for the little girl, who feels sad and small and alone until she remembers all that her grandmother taught her — and all that she now has to teach.

You can come and ask questions and do all that other stuff that one does when one is video chatting. You can watch me and make faces. I will not know. But I will be so glad that you are there.
Also, currently there is a giveaway you can sign up for Grandma’s Gloves.
