- C. Lee McKenzie's release of her new YA novel, Sudden Secrets. I brought my Kindle with me to Costa Rica expecting to read Sudden Secrets but I have a confession to make... I had no extra time to read!! But Sudden Secrets is at the top of my list.
- I polished off two of my children's book manuscripts last week. I had them on the backburner for quite some time now but I would really like to see them published, asap. Of course, there will be tons of edits for them to go through. I am on my 4th picture book as we speak and this idea came to me during my vacation to Costa Rica. I am still feeling the story out but this is what I love about writing children's books. I love to see the story and images unfold together as I imagine them inside my meandering head.
- I had a school author visit on Thursday of last week. I seriously can't thank the Universe and God enough for providing my soul with these incredible blessings. I absolutely adore spending time with the children, especially when it comes to presenting and storytelling. The kids had a blast and I will share a couple of photos below=) I have another visit in a couple of weeks and I am also teaming up with United Way for the 2nd year in a row to read to low income schools. I can't wait!
- I wanted to share some of my photos and adventures from Costa Rica with all of you. Hopefully, they will inspire you to book your tickets for a future trip there. If you haven't had a chance to visit, I highly recommend checking it out!
Sudden Secrets by C. Lee McKenzie
Cleo has struggled to heal after her baby sister’s death, but the flashbacks to the accident won’t go away. With the move, she vows to keep her tragedy a secret and avoid pitying looks.
Something’s strange about the abandoned house across the street—flashes of light late at night and small flickers of movement that only someone looking for them would see.
Everyone says the house is deserted, but Cleo is sure it isn’t, and she’s sure whoever is inside is watching her.
In one night, Belleza’s life changes forever. So famous, her only choice is to hide her secret from the world so she can silence small town bigotry.
Then Cleo happens.
