Texas, Books & Friends!
In just 3 days I'll be in Houston, Texas at the Texas Library Association conference! It's the biggest library conference in the U.S. and the only place my presentation received a standing ovation. To be fair, I was talking about the real Phantom Stallion, so what did I expect?
This time I'll share the stage with my WILD AT HEART editor Julia Richardson (she read my first Phantom Stallion book & said -- "Hey, this could be a series.") and photojournalist Melissa Farlow.

Back Bones, Not Wish Bones: Inspire Tweens and Teens to Stand Up for Issues
10:15 - 11:50 AM
Fiction and non-fiction can inspire youth to take on a cause. Provide
the launch pad that vaults young people over barriers to fight for
issues. Hear an example of advocating for a cause and receive hands-on
experience with tools and resources to help lead teens toward action.
