Why I Don’t Usually Share Press Clippings

I had a great time at the Sheboygan Children’s Book Festival! Will share stories and photos this week or next:>)

Mead Library
And here’s why I cringe when reporters come into an event for candid photos.

    1. Thank you for not trying to convince me it’s a good picture–I appreciate it! My husband says he actually likes it. I hope he’s lying, or I’m really going to start questioning his judgment!

    1. Thanks, Robyn. It would just be fun to share more pics from school visits, but they always look like this–or worse!

  1. I know exactly what you mean. But we all know what a beauty you are, so don’t sweat it!

    1. Aw, thanks–I just think it’s funny that there is NEVER a good candid shot of me. Never. Ah, well.

  3. Ah, harsh lighting and fluorescents — no one’s friend! And the cover is almost so wiped out we can’t see the title! Oh, well — at least there are WORDS to go with the picture, and you got to speak words to people who saw you in person. There’s always that.

    as she starts to teach…
    a children’s author
    caught mid-speech!
