Well, that was odd…

I was interviewed by hamsters. I’m not complaining, mind you. Far from it.

I’m flattered!

The little guys graciously made room in their crazy schedules to help me promote my upcoming book.

This book. Preorder it HERE!

So, if you wanna see how that turned out, head on over to Shehanne Moore’s blog. I think you’ll be glad you did.

Thank you, Shehanne! And thank you for your hospitality, Hammies!

10 Things About Me! (Yay!)

One of the things about me is related to carpet cleaning. Curious? Well, read it anyway.

Marcia Meara, who hosts the amazing blog, The Write Stuff, asked me to contribute to her #TenThingsYouMayNotKnowAbout column. And, of course I did, because Marcia is wonderful and I was honored.

Come on over, give it a read, and leave a comment! As always, I look forward to chatting with you!

Yes! You Can Draw A Capybara!

“Don’t say you can’t draw me. Of course you can. Capy has faith in you. All you need is a little faith in yourself.”

The release date for Sleepy Happy Capy Cuddles is about a month away and, well, I’m getting giddy!

Preorder it HERE!

I’m pleased to say that this giddiness is shared by the good folks at Page Street Kids, who have done many wonderful things to get the word out. They’ve sponsored a capybara through the World Wildlife Fund. They’ve set me up with book signings and school visits. They’ve created book plates and buttons and other bits of capybara swag. They’ve even sent me a capybara stuffed animal. (Gotta have my stuffy!)

They’ve also created an activity packet. Included in this packet is a capybara drawing guide by Illustrator Extraordinaire Jaimie Whitbread. And I don’t care how artistically challenged you might be, Whitbread’s simple, step-by-step instructions will get you drawing a Guinea Big of your very own!

So give it a try, my friends! And by all means, feel free to share your work in the comments! Or share whatever else you want to say in the comments. I like chatting with you.
