Jane Austen, blowing minds since 1813

“You shall not, for the sake of one individual, change the meaning of principle and integrity, nor endeavour to persuade yourself or me, that selfishness is prudence, and insensibility of danger security for happiness.”

–Elizabeth Bennet in Pride and Prejudice

Here’s me playing charades at the Kids Author Carnival last weekend. As you can see, I am very, very serious. Think you can guess which book title I’m acting out? Turn down the volume and guess! 🙂

In other exciting news, I got to meet someone I’ve wanted to meet in person for a really long time — Veera Hiranandani, author of The Whole Story of Half a Girl and the great Phoebe G. Green series.

I’m soooo excited to participate in this year’s Kids Author Carnival on May 30 at the Jefferson Market Library in NYC. I mean, just look at this line-up of middle grade authors. Last year’s event looked like so much fun. I wonder how we’re going to top it! Mark your calendars for a fun night!
