See you at B&N’s B-Fest!

I’m excited to be participating in B-Fest, Barnes & Noble’s first national teen book festival this weekend! I’ll be back in Philadelphia at the Rittenhouse Square Barnes & Noble at 1805 Walnut Street on Sunday, June 12 at 2:00 p.m.

I’m appearing as part of Adaptive Studios’ B-Creative story development workshop, talking about my writing process for the Silence of Six series. We’ll be giving away ARCs of my new book, Against All Silence, and of course I’m happy to sign copies of the first book, which is now out in paperback.

I hope to see you there!

the stars my destination

LaunchPadI have exciting news! I’m going to the Launch Pad Astronomy Workshop this summer!

Launch Pad is a “crash course” in astronomy for professional writers and editors. By learning about modern science from guest lectures and observing the stars through telescopes at the University of Wyoming, we can share that knowledge with others through our own work. I was first introduced to a lot of the science I love through books I read as a kid, like William Sleator’s Singularity and Madeline L’Engle’s A Wrinkle in Time, so I know how effective fiction can be at educating as well as entertaining. And I hope to pay that forward with my own stories.

I’ve wanted to attend Launch Pad ever since Mike Brotherton founded the workshop, and I’m thrilled that I’ll finally be able to participate with a truly talented group and an impressive roster of instructors. I’m also bummed that I’m going to miss my favorite convention, Readercon, but… Launch Pad!
