Where I Write and Draw
(a room of my own!)
I was asked to write about where I write for TNBBC’s “Where Writers Write” series, so I decided to write and draw about where I write and draw. I don’t know about you, but I love seeing people’s desks and studios. Here’s a little peek into mine.
News & Events
I don’t usually include ACTUAL news in my newsletter, but it’s a pretty busy month, so here are some updates. First, I want to share a few scenes from my amazing visit to Portland last weekend. I got to be part of events with two wonderful writers who are also former soccer players: Susie Petruccelli, author of the memoir RAISED A WARRIOR, and Gwendolyn Oxenham, author of PRIDE OF A NATION, the official book of the US Women’s National Team, and producer of the podcast HUSTLE RULE, narrated by Ted Lasso’s Hannah Waddingham(!).
Our first stop was at the iconic SPORTS BRA, the bar dedicated to women’s sports (as in, it only shows women’s sports on its TVs!), founded by Jenny Nguyen (top right in pic collage). They created a drink in our honor: The Page Turner! ❤️
The next day we had an event with the supporters group for the Portland Thorns (professional women’s soccer), 107IST and the BOOKED! Library, where we got to talk in more depth about our books before heading to the Thorns’ game that night!
Our books were sold at both events by the legendary POWELL’S BOOKS (swoon!).
Then, when I was at the airport to come home, I learned that THE KEEPER was the New York Public Library’s Book of the Day! Yay!
