There's an awful lot
of local pressure
my next book
to be about

The Boy on the Porch

(Coming September 3, 2013)

This is the newest book, out in a few weeks.  

The title floated in my head as I woke one day two years ago, although I did not recognize it as a title. It was merely a phrase, insistent enough that it stuck with me through the morning.  The following day, it appeared again as I awoke, and later that day after a nap, again: "the boy on the porch."  A few days later, again.  And again.  And again.

Okay, okay, okay.  I will write to find out about the boy on the porch!

Student Art: Decorated Envelopes

Fan mail with illustrated envelopes
makes me smile.

Why don't more of us
indulge in this art?

Maybe you will send a letter
to someone today
and decorate its envelope
