July 20, 2017 book signing, other events, shop

Special Announcement!

Special announcement time: I have exciting new stuff in the shop, book signings, a pop up shop, upcoming art shows, new illustrations, and more surprises for you!

URGENT ALERT! I’ll be signing Stack the Cats this Saturday, July 22nd at San Diego Comic Con, Booth #1216 from 11:30am – 12:30pm! Stack the Cats is being reprinted, so this is with the exciting caveat: WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!

Then, in a couple weeks, find my Boygirlparty Pop-up Shop at Cat Con Worldwide in Pasadena, CA! I’ll have new and *exclusive* products for sale (use code CATCON to get $5 off your tickets, code expires 7/21)


This may be my biggest shop update ever.
Check out the new to-do lists, enamel pins and more in the boygirlparty shop!


Amazon Books named Stack the Cats one of the Best Books of the Year for their mid-year round up! Absolutely incredible! (And also, as I work on a new picture book for 2018, no pressure….)


Make sure you check back on the events list here on this site —>

Lots of upcoming events including: A solo art show in Chicago, a pop up shop in Pasadena, a book signing in San Diego, a group art show in New Hampshire, an author panel and festival of books in San Diego, and more to be announced!


I’ve been updating the site with my latest creations. See new illustration work at

I’m sure I’m forgetting something, but that’s it for now!

Stack the Cats is out! Here are some of the exciting things that have happened since:


If you missed out on the first few events, I have some others coming this summer, so keep an eye on the event calendar, subscribe to the list, or find me on Facebook.

Next month, you can also find me posting over at the SCBWI Team Blog during #LA17SCBWI, the annual Los Angeles conference for the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators July 7-10. Register at this link. The action-packed SCBWI summer conference is an incredible resource for anyone interested in a career in children’s books as author or illustrator. And Judy Blume will be there!

Until then, I’m here shipping orders, preparing for upcoming shows, talks, signings, and craft shows, and working on my next book. Here’s some of what’s new in the shop:
