News From Planet B.J....
Had a fabulous time in Miami at the
2018 SCBWI Conference!
Workshops, networking, critiques,
and the best company...here I am
with the one and only Lee Bennett
Hopkins (officially the sweetest
man on earth).
Signing my contract for
my upcoming picture book,
"There Was an Old Gator
Who Swallowed a Moth",
from Pelican Publishing!

I visited Pinecrest Elementary
School in Lithia as part of the
Great American Teach-In. The
kids were great, and some of
them are certainly budding
poets. It was wonderful to
offer a little inspiration and
have fun together.
My poem, "We Nail It" has been
accepted into Lee Bennett
Hopkins' upcoming anthology,
CONSTRUCTION PEOPLE, with
Wordsong. Pub date TBD. Thank
you, Lee!

My poem, "Sea Glass,"
published in ORBIT (The
School Magazine), February,
2018. Wonderful illustration
by Gaye Chapman.
I'm very honored that my poem, "Moored" will appear
on a memorial in Bannerman Park, St. John's,
Newfoundland. The memorial is for a young woman
named Camille who died at the young age of 21 and loved
sailing. The memorial will either be an engraved plaque
or a sculpture by renowned sculptor, Luben Boykov.
Either way, I am tremendously honored that they choose
"Moored" to honor Camille!
My poem, "Roseate Spoonbill," is included in an article on these colorful birds in the Savannah Morning News,
February 27, 2018
My poem "Yes, Katy Did" appears in
the June 2018 issue of Highlights,
