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)

San Diego Comic Con, 2022!

Charles M Schulz Museum Guest Speaker!

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.
