The Mystery Writer's American Cookbook, with recipes by some of my favorite mystery writers! And I also got to meet mystery writer Clea Simon and get an autographed copy of her book, Dogs Don't Lie.
I have been a fan for years so this was truly a thrill! Can't wait to start reading!

Just returned from a great weekend at BookCon 2015 in NYC where I signed copies of my Middle Grade book Chips a Hometown Hero. Of course, there was amazing swag to be had, and so many fabulous books to see. I can't wait to start reading!!

|Black Swans at the Steinhardt Estate, Mount Kisco, New York|
I was so excited to see not just one but an entire flock of black swans at a recent Garden Conservancy Tour (Judy & Michael Steinhardt Estate in Mount Kisco, New York) They are native to Australia.
A black swan plays a central part in my current YA novel, and, quite honestly, I never expected to see one in the feather, so to speak! They are just as beautiful and graceful as white swans but perhaps a bit more mysterious and exotic. This one swam directly to me and posed. Did I mention that black swans are thought to be psychic?
