Leaving LA

So I had a wonderful time out here in LA - nice, cool weather and even nicer, cooler friends/writers at the SCBWI Annual Conference! 

I was so thrilled to meet so many fellow writers (including several awesome Tenners) who have inspired and reinvigorated me to go back home and keep writing! I was lucky enough to be speaking at the conference (with the absolutely amazing Jennifer Cervantes and Guadalupe Garcia McCall-- if you haven't read Tortilla Sun by Jen, stop what you are doing and go out and buy it right now-- as for Guadalupe's Under The Mesquite, we all have to wait a few more months before that great book becomes available) and the three of us had a great time with the people who came to our breakout sessions.  So now I'm packing my bags and heading to the airport (okay, not actually packing at this very moment because I'm typing on my computer, but you know what I mean) and I can't wait to be home.  I'll talk about and post some pics of the signings I had while in LA later (trust me they were so much fun!), but,  for now, LAX awaits!
