I was invited to Brussels to give a keynote at the SCBWI Europolitan Conference. SCBWI is a great network for children’s authors, and I’ve been involved with it since before I was published myself.… Read more
Today I’ve got some great news for German Detective Society Members. Knesebeck Verlag, my German publishers, really love the series – so much that they’ve decided to buy Mistletoe and Murder and Cream Buns and Crime!
