where the writers are
Authors Everywhere in Amherst

Okay, so after herartistic debutat the R. Michelson Galleries . . .


Peepyand I did lots of other fun authorial stuff in the Northampton, MA area.


"Like what? What did you do?" you ask, or I ask, or we can pretend Colin Firth as Mr. Darcy asked.


Why, here's a small sampling. We worked on a novel at the Mount Holyoke College library and feigned being at Hogwarts, which was probably really distracting when we leapt on the table and shouted, "expecto patronum!"


We explored the library . . .


We ate lunch withEllen Wittlingerand then ate another lunch withJarrett Krosoczka(on a different day) . . .



But while we were waiting for Jarrett, we ran intoGrace Linand Little Brown editorAlvina Ling!!!


Then we met moreBlue Rose Girls,Anna AlterandLibby Koponen. . .


Later, we went toEmily Dickenson's house, but no one was home . . .


So then we went toTony DeTerlizzi'shouse and even though he and his wifeAngelahid, we knew they were inside. And finally, so were we . . .

(That's actually stuff from theSpiderwickmovie!)


The bathroom was delightful. Um, if you can say that about a bathroom . . .

(Famous artists made their marks, so to speak.)

Then Tony brought out the really cool stuff . . .


Yes! He made a set of Winnie-the-Pooh and friends when he was in college. It seems we are both HUGE Pooh fans! Here's some of my collection . . .


Now, being the kind person I am, I gave this lovely front-back-both-arms-deer-art shirt to Mr. DiTerlizzi . . .


And he gave these to me!!!!!

(He doesn't know it yet, though.)

While we were trying to figure out how we could hide Pooh and his pals in my purse,Scott Fischerstopped by and distracted us . . .


Oh, hey! (How's that for a smooth transition?) Here's arecent interviewI did over at Author Turf!
