Oh my gosh, in my backyard in Cincinnati, the squirrels make these noises all the time! I don't know what it means though...

So happy to see THE DISTANCE TO HOME on this list of fabulous girl-centered middle grade novels. Tomorrow, it will be three years since it was released, and it warms my heart to think of all the readers my little book baby (toddler) has found already.

A huge thank you to author for the beautiful books she sent to our students! ❤️ I’m convinced if MG Authors could run the world- it would be a better place! I’m so touched by her generosity.

Congrats to , the winner of this giveaway. So wish I could give away a box of books to all of you. This giveaway really highlighted again for me the need in so many communities of more books for readers.

I’m sure I’ll be back on Twitter and other social media when the month is up, but my hope is that in the interim I can cultivate more small moments of grace and attention.

I don’t have a lot of quiet moments these days. There’s a lot of noise in the world. So much to follow, so much I don’t want to “miss.” But I’m starting to see what else I’m missing, from not being as present as I could be.

Early summer 2016 feels like a lifetime away now, but all I’m thinking today, as I’m about to embark on a month-long digital declutter, was that I’d never have imagined that novel if I hadn’t been having that quiet moment on my porch.

It’s a small thing, but it’s the catalyst for the story that became THINGS YOU CAN’T SAY, which comes out next spring.

But one thing that stuck? That was truly central to the story I was trying to tell? The arrival of the man on the motorcycle.

And in that way I always do, I tried to write this story before I even knew what it was. Draft after draft after draft. So many discarded scenes and threads. Like a house burning down in a fire. And a seahorse birth.

Not a full idea, mind you. More of a glimmer. A fragment even. The beginning of a story. Maybe.

But as I sat on my porch, just casually watching folks trek up the hill after work, a motorcycle rumbled past. And with it, an idea.

Nope, instead I have a lot of impulsively purchased notebooks, with a few pages filled in at most. In any case, I was nervous, as most (all?) debuts are. How many books did I have in me? What if this was it?

My first book was about to be releasing and I’d revised my second, but I wasn’t sure what to write about next. The truth is, I’ve never been one of those writers with a whole notebook brimming with ideas.

This evening, while my cat sat in the kitchen window watching my neighbor tinker with his motorcycle in his garage, I couldn’t help but think about a small moment on my porch three years ago, right about now. [a thread]
