Back to School: Divine Mercy, a new partner, and St. Stephen’s, my 4th year!
As the new school year begins, I’m happy to announce I’ll be working another year with the children and staff of St. Stephen’s School in Harrisburg, PA. Love those kids and teachers! I am also pleased to collaborate with two elementary schools near Johnstown, PA: Divine Mercy Academy East and West. The icing on all the cakes is the enthusiasm the teachers have for our collective instructional focus: Kid Writing and Writers’ Workshop. Wonderful!
Books in the Classroom, Books in the Works
My newly published book set is from Black Rabbit Books. Fun and full of facts, my dino books are great for reluctant readers, with lots of graphs for math and STEM tie ins. Other books are in the pipeline, including my flying-dropkick biography of Bruce Lee (from Hameray). Still others exist in the first draft and final draft stages, such as an informational book on Wi-fi (for Capstone Press) that I am just beginning to write and my middle grade novel, ZimZim, DARPA, and the Battles of Jordy Lewis, a manuscript that a publisher is currently considering.
