Today I spent the morning at Neill Elementary in Richmond, TX! I got to hang out with the Neil Longhorns and follow their character-building assembly—Castle Quest!

There were tons of young writers in the audience and even a couple of future screenwriters. I know this because two of them emailed me later for advice. Good luck on your screenplay, Ava & Elijah!

Thanks to Mrs. O’Brien for inviting me. Thanks to Castle Quest guys, Parker and James for the use of the equipment. And a big thanks to all the Neill Longhorns for the fun morning!

After two shows at Neill, I zipped over to nearby Highlands Elementary to have lunch and spend the day with the Highlands Scotties! This was my second visit to Highlands Elementary with a new librarian, all-new Scotties, but just as much fun. After both shows, Mrs. Allen drew names for lucky winners to receive one of my books!

Congratulations: Alex, Anna, Caitlynn, Daniel, Jenisha, Johnathan, Luci, Ramona, Ria, Rishit, Tobi, and Veda! It was great meeting you and a pleasure to sign each of your books!



No, there’s not a virus going around, some Scotties watched 101 Dalmatians today and many students dressed the part!

Thanks to Mrs. Evans for inviting me and for lunch. And a special thanks to all the Scotties! You still know how to make an author feel welcome!
