Kudos & Winner


Mimi Cross has signed a contract for representation with agent Josh Getzler at the Hannigan Salky Getzler Agency.

During the craft weekend in November I got to read the first fifteen pages of one of Mimi’s manuscripts. She was waiting to here back about being offer representation and I knew she would be successful after what I read.

Congratulations! Mimi!

You have been working very hard for that to happen. Glad to see it pay off for you.


Yay! Carol Lindstrom‘s first picture book, “Girls Dance, Boys Fiddle,” has just been published by Pemmican Publications.  It is a multicultural PB based on my Metis heritage. Carol says, “I’m so excited.  I know that none of this would be possible if it weren’t for the SCBWI.  I can’t imagine being a children’s writer without them.” 

It will be available in January in Amazon but it is currently available at:

Kudos to Kelly Calabrese, writer, actor, and creative junkie. She is celebrating her debut poetry book, THE GROWING YEARS, so if you  know Kelly and/or live in NYC, come out to Cornelia Street Cafe’s Poetry Night and hear Kelly read and perform poems from her new book.  

It will be available for purchase on Amazon, B&N, and LuLu by January and who knows she might even have some with her. The date is December 23rd at 6pm and it includes an $8.00 drink.
