SCBWI Days and SCBWI Nights

This was my second SCBWI conference in L.A. I cannot begin to tell you how wonderful this organization is. Thank you, Lin Oliver.

Taking a few photos, trying to get centered on my way to lunch with my editors and art director. It didn't work; it only made me late.

The dreamiest editorial team in the world: Allyn Johnston, publisher at Beach Lane Books; Lauren Rille, Designer Extraordinaire; me; Andrea Welch, Editor Supreme; and Rubin Pfeffer, Special Agent.

Rubin took his authors and illustrators to dinner Sunday night. This occasion turned out to be the most intimate dinner of 20 I've ever attended. We laughed and cried and bared our souls.
