Humid thoughts

Spent yesterday stuck in paperwork hell. Rewarded myself this morning by getting a coffee at Starbucks. Got personal brownie points by making it to the post office before it opened. I was number four in line.

The interview at Recorded Books last week was lots of fun. The quality of the soundproof booth freaked me out. It felt like it should have been hard to breathe, but it wasn’t. The reader for PROM is Katherine Kellgren who, in addition to her audiobook work, is a stage actress in NYC. Thank you for the great questions, Katherine! I go back to NYC next Friday, this time to do some commentary for the DVD version of the SPEAK movie. I have more details about that, but I’m not supposed to talk about them yet. As soon as I can release the info, you’ll read it here.

One of the coolest things about writing for kids and teenagers is that readers sometimes show you their school projects that were based on your books. I’ve seen lots of trees (SPEAK), mosquitoes (FEVER 1793), and periodic tables (CATALYST). And now the fun is beginning with PROM!
