You will find me traipsing about the Internet participating in a number of online, audio and video segments about kidlit, writing, inspiration, and gratitude.

Episode #129 – How to Create an iBook for Apple’s iBookstore with iBooks Author – I was grateful to have a gratitude segment in the same episode that featured my friend Sarah Towle on the day she launched her iBook – Beware Madame la Guillotine – in the iBookstore.

Appropriately enough, my Grateful segment is about the valuable connections and friendships we can make online.
