The Rainforest of Reading Festival:
Classrooms in Monserrat, Caribbean
Gabby is putting on her crisp school uniform and heading back to the Rainforest, to bring her stories to the children of Monserrat.
Gabby illustrator Jan Dolby and I will be flying to the Caribbean island to do school visits and to support the fabulous Rainforest of Reading program, funded by the One World Schoolhouse Foundation.

Packaging Your Imagination, CANSCAIP’S premier conference, Nov. 14, 2015
Will you be at PYI this year? If you’re an author or illustrator–or want to be one, you should definitely be at this conference. It’s held each year at the Humber Lakeshore campus and it’s the best way to get information about the craft.
This year, digital expert Angela Misri and I are giving one-to-one critiques on your author website. SOLD OUT! But the good news is you can still get a one-on-one author website critique from us–just click here.
I’ll be at CANSCAIP’s fabulous annual Packaging Your Imagination conference on
Saturday, November 14, 2015. Along with digital expert and author Angela Misri, I’ll be conducting assessments of author websites and social media.
If you’re a kidlit author–or aspire to be one–this is the conference for you.
Our Author Website Critiques are sold out, but you can sign up for one from us after the conference at the Plot Goes Viral, here.
Hope to see you on Saturday at PYI:

You already know her Gabby characters–but check out the other many adorable characters that she features on pillows, pencil cases and Christmas ornaments.
The show has a range of remarkable artisans and is definitely worth checking out.
