"Miss Maple's Seeds" is written and illustrated by talented good friend & fellow mentee Eliza Wheeler (winner of 2011 SCBWI Portfolio Showcase). Here are some photos at the event.

Now that Eliza had done a book featuring my name (which she wrote before we met, but still!), I feel like returning the favor.
You see, my neighbor raises chicken in her yard and does not have a gate-policy, so I constantly find chicken walking about in my front yard. (And sometimes mysteriously in my backyard –– a case I still have to investigate –– how did they hop the fence?)
So, somewhere in the future, I should write a book called... "Miss Eliza's Wandering Chicken".

But seriously, if you haven't already, get a copy of "Miss Maple's Seeds" today! The story is wonderful and the illustrations are marvelous! Here is a link to Amazon.
(Or, better yet, support your local bookstore and get a copy there!)
A big congratulations again, Eliza. I LOVE the book! =)
