  1. Wow, this sounds like a great panel! I had the pleasure of hearing you on an author panel at AASL last year and you were fabulous! So down to earth! I’d love to hear Leslie Connor too. Waiting for Normal absolutely broke my heart. Love that one and your One for the Murphys! Have a wonderful time next week.

    • Hey, Melanie – such a sweet message! Thank you so much 🙂 I am SUCH a fan of Leslie Connor – as an author and as a wonderful person. Hope our paths cross again!

  2. Hope our paths cross at NCTE, Lynda! I’ve highlighted your signings in my schedule and would love to get to a session! Safe travels! 😊

  4. Enjoy! Sounds like quite the line-up. Don’t forget to pack Power bars! You will shine.

  5. Wish I could make it to one of your sessions, but they’re both pitted against others I’m trying to catch. I hate it when all the sessions I want to attend are at the same time. Hoping to meet you at the signings – I need a copy of Fish in a Tree!
