For all my readers in Texas, I’ll be one of over eighty authors paneling at the North Texas Teen Book Festival on Saturday, March 4th. Really excited about NTTBF since I get to chat about making stories all day which is, like, my favorite thing to do. Here’s some of the fun things I’ll be talking about as well as what times and where to find me.

Busy day!

For those not attending NTTBF, I’m posting the rest of my 2017 appearance schedule below. I’ll do my best to keep this post current as events are added or changed, so maybe bookmark it if at all interested in catching me somewhere this year (it’ll also be posted on the sidebar of this website).
