Back in the Saddle

Hey everyone!

Well, I’ve been a naughty little blogger and haven’t made many posts in the last several months, but I hope to correct that in the months ahead. Many new books are in the works and I’ll keep you posted about those as news surfaces!


In the spirit of that, I’d love to share the cover sketch for a new book that David Barneda and I are developing. It’s called PIRATES VS COWBOYS and will be published by Knopf sometime next year. Here’s the cover sketch:


The rest of the book is shaping up awesome, with lots of fishy squishy pirates and rootin’ tootin’ cowboys, culminating in an bang-up showdown of epic proportions.


I’m also keeping busy doing many school visits this year. I had a fantastic time with the 4th and 5th graders of Sherwood Elementary in Highland Park, IL last week. Thanks to that gang for making me feel so welcome.


I’ll report in again real soon! I promise!

    You’ll be visiting our school next Monday and we’re really giddy* to meet you. We just read all about you on your website and you sound like one fun author.
    See you soon,
    Mrs. Bielenda’s chatty 5th grade class from Carpenter School in Park Ridge.

    *giddy is one of this week’s vocab words
