Recently, I was asked to create a page for the new(ish) and wonderful book-discovery website, Shepard.com. On this site, many authors have penned uniquely categorized “best of” book lists. This is one of those. To view it, click here. Enjoy!
(note: I have many other favorite middle grade books, but these fit well into this specific category)
As a cartoonist, I’m always asked about my greatest influences. I have quite a few, but my earliest — like many, many cartoonists — was Charles Schulz (Peanuts).
Therefore, you can imagine how honored I am to be speaking at the Charles M Schulz Museum in Santa Rosa, CA on Saturday, June 25! It’s a beautiful museum and venue. I visited in 2009 and can’t wait to get back.
I hope you west coasters and your families will join me. I’ll talk about my career as a cartoonist, author, and greeting card writer (amusing images included). I’ll even go back further in time to those days of doodling Snoopy and Woodstock on everything and everyone. Bonus: there will be drawing with volunteers (will it be you?).
This is a ticketed event; registration and info HERE.
It’s happening — I’m leaving the house! I hope you will, too, if only to join me at some of these fun events. See below for my tour schedule (some virtual ones may be added soon) and for the links to register.
