Want to know more about my work and how I do it? Check out "The Studio," a new feature on the Girl Scouts' Web site. Every week, The Studio features a different author of books for kids and/or young adults, and I'm up this week, January 16-22. (After that, you should be able to find all of my material in the archive.) I answer the five W's (who, what, when, where, and why) and one H (how) about my job as an author; tell you about my recent hunt for "buried treasure"; give you hints for examining photographs; and tell you about a writing contest for kids in grades 6, 7, and 8. You'll also find photos of me with some spirited Girl Scouts. So come on into The Studio.

In just a few days, I’ll be taking part in the inaugural Kidlit Celebrates Women’s History Month blogging event organized by bloggers Margo Tanenbaum, also known as The Fourth Musketeer, and Lisa Taylor, also known as Shelf-Employed. Each day this month, a different author, librarian, or bookseller who specializes in children’s literature has been blogging about a topic related to women’s history. If you've been following the project, you know that there's a great lineup of contributors, including Ann Bausum, Tonya Bolden, Candace Fleming, Kathleen Krull, and Tanya Lee Stone. My post will be up on March 28.
