Austin, TX ...

here I come!

Before I was a published author, I thought it would be so cool to visit The Texas Book Festival in Austin, TX. I'm now counting down the hours before I get to be there and be a part of the festival. Earlier this year, Went Out To Get a Donut, Came Home With a Muffin won first place 7 and under from The Texas Association of Authors.
After winning, I found out that I would get to have my book at the Texas Book Festival, represented in the TAA booth! I can't wait to see all the books and authors, meet some new fans and hopefully sell some books! While there, I'll get to see my boss from the work study job I had in High School -- Jon Whitney! Looking forward to catching up and having lunch on Saturday! I'll also be trying to see if I can get a picture of Laura Bush ... that would be really cool.

If you are in the Austin area, I hope you stop on by and say HI ... I will share pictures when I get back!
