Hot on the heels of my first classroom visit (six months ago), I’ve been invited to participate in a panel discussion at the Writers’ League of Texas’ 2006 Agents and Editors Conference.

The topic — surprise! — will be children’s publishing, and the tentative lineup will have me joined by two other children’s book creators, each published many times over, as well as an agent. I’ll pass along more details once they’re confirmed.

So, if you plan to be in Austin on Saturday, June 24, come on by. And don’t forget to holler, “Hey! Let the newbie speak!”
