Hello again! I hope everyone’s had a wonderful summer and is gearing up for the school year ahead. My calendar is starting to fill up with school visits, which is always exciting.
Happy Spring! It’s so nice to see flowers blooming and leaves popping out on trees all over New York City. I’ve been keeping myself busy editing and teaching and writing and visiting readers—all things I love doing. Two of my visits this past month were different than usual, though.
Happy New Year, everybody! I can’t believe how fast the fall semester flew by! I was flying all over myself, talking about writing from New York to Montana to Seattle and back again. I also answered some questions about sequels on the Tollbooth blog in November for an interview that the wonderful author Michelle Knudsen conducted on the topic.

Hello and welcome back to school! I’m incredibly excited this month because The Nina, The Pinta and the Vanishing Treasure got nominated for an award—the 2012 Young Hoosier Book Award, to be exact! Three cheers for all the Young Hoosiers—and their teachers and librarians—in Indiana! Also, if you’re reading this page while in Indiana and want me to come visit your school or library, please email me so we can set something up!
Time has been flying recently! I’ve been school visiting and conference speaking and class teaching and, of course, writing. I just found out some good news, though, so I thought I’d pop on here to let everyone know.
Wow, I can’t believe how quickly this fall has flown. Here are a few fun Alec-related links (and one me-related link) that I’ve been meaning to put up for awhile. Hope you enjoy!
The Ransom Note Blues just got a super nice review from School Library Journal that is going to run in their September edition!
Here’s what they said:
The Ransom Note Blues should be arriving in bookstores and libraries momentarily! I just got my author copies, which is always very exciting.
Last time I posted on this news page, I mentioned something about a party at Books of Wonder in New York City…so here’s the info! I’d love for everyone to come celebrate with me.
The Ransom Note Blues is coming out so soon! We have some big plans in the works like a soon-to-be-revealed online contest and a big book launch party at Books of Wonder in NYC. More to come on all of that very soon!
It’s been very busy here lately! I’ve been doing a lot of school visiting, and so far have talked about Alec Flint in Boston, The Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan, Staten Island and a bunch of different towns on Long Island. But I figured I’d pop on here to share a link with you.
