Deb Lund

Deb is not only a wonderful writer, she is also a terrific editor and teacher. She once helped me with a manuscript and it became unrecognizably better.

As Deb has a wonderfully warm personality, I am not surprised she's a popular presenter at schools, bookstores, libraries, and conferences. She is presently working on an upper middle-grade novel, an adult novel, and a book on teaching writing.

Deb is a creativity coach, writing teacher, and continuing education instructor for writing teachers at www.hol.edu. She's been a classroom and music teacher, a librarian, a school founding director. If you have the good fortune to work with her, you will find out she's generous and passionate about supporting writers, education, and the arts. Read an interview with Deb Lund I published here.

Queen of Likes, by Hillary Homzie

I was invited to a launch party given by Hillary Homzie in Napa Valley, but sadly was unable to attend. I met Hillary through taking one of her amazing classes on writing chapter books.

Hillary is presently writing a terrifically successful series for tweens:

THINGS ARE GONNA GET UGLY

THE HOT LIST

QUEEN OF LIKES

Her launch party was for her new book QUEEN OF LIKES. She has had amazing reviews on her previous books. Her books captured voice, thoughts and hyper-sensitivity of pre-teen girls. Her books are full of humor.
