Ring in the New Year with Freedom Soup! (the book and the recipe!)
Chatting it up with Cheldin Barlatt Rumer about kidlit and using rejection as a gift!
A Thanksgiving twist on a classic Haitian New Year's Day tradition...Freedom Soup (with a cranberry apple relish). Freedom Soup honors the world's first independent Black republic...Haiti! I'm honored to have written a children's picture book about the backstory of this soup, debuting with Candlewick Press in fall, 2019.
Check out this great video of 3rd grade students and teacher reviewing my latest picture book, Fearless Mary! Special thanks to teacher/author, Frank Murphy, for filming and organizing.
I had a chance to go back to where it all started: My alma mater, University High, in Newark, NJ! What a pleasure it was to connect with young readers of LIKE VANESSA!
Interview with Maria Dismondy of Cardinal Rule Press, chatting up the "writing" life.
I asked readers to tell how they, too, were "Like Vanessa." Meet Alyssa.
It takes a village to raise a book. Luckily, I had some pretty awesome friends and family who willingly jumped on the bandwagon to spread the word about my debut novel.
