My final few appearances of the year are coming up, beginning this weekend at one of my favorite shows, Baltimore Comic-Con! You’ll once again be able to find me hanging out in the Kids Love Comics Pavilion (section 3000), table 3012. I’ll have all four Cleo books on hand as well as a pretty large selection of prints. I think this is like my 100th time exhibiting at BCC? Always a good time. Hope to see both new and familiar faces!

The following weekend, Sunday October 1st, I’ll be in my old college town at Cartoon Crossroads Columbus (CXC). This’ll be my first time at this one and I’m excited to check it out. My schedule below.

And finally, my last appearance for the year will be at the 16th annual Vegas Valley Book Festival on Saturday, October 21. Another first for me! I’m not really a gambler but I do love me a buffet, so can’t wait to pay another visit to the strip. Also grateful not to be in Nevada during the summer. My schedule:

Engaged Tent

Discovery Tent

This has been a fun but busy year of traveling for me, so it’s somewhat bittersweet to be winding down to the end of it. I’ll update this post as my schedules for each event are confirmed, so be sure to bookmark it if you’re interesting in going to any of  ’em. Otherwise, maybe I’ll see you next year!


I’ll be at Emerald City Comics on Saturday November 18th for Local Comic Shop Day! Cleo books and prints will be on hand.

And on Saturday December 2nd, I’ll be signing at The Clearwater Banes & Noble from 1-4pm as part of a fundraiser for the reading classes of Dunedin Highland Middle School. There will be some other authors there too, but I’m not exactly sure who just yet. I’ll let you know once I do.
