Nov. 5 – Texas Book Festival

The Texas Book Festival is my favorite time of the year! It’s an all-out celebration of books and the people who love them. I’m thrilled to be on the schedule this year, along with many other fabulous authors. Here’s where you’ll find me:

There are so many labels out there. How can educators ensure that every child feels welcome in their classroom?

May 5-7 – Retreat

In addition to being a writer, I’m also a meditation teacher. I find a profound and enlivening connection between contemplative practice and the creative process.

This May 5-7, I’ll be offering a yoga/meditation retreat at The Writing Barn in Austin. I’ll be teaching alongside yoga instructor and musician Cindy Novelo. This will be a time for both meditation and movement, silence and song. Here’s a taste of the music that inspired the retreat: Hard Times Come Again No More
