Chuck Sambuchino's 16th Lucky Agent Contest and Malificent

Hi writer friends, writers and friends;

It's been a busy two months for me. I just finished a YA contemporary novel, a new genre for me, and I attended the NJSCBWI conference a few weeks ago, where I met new friends and connected with old ones (Patti Brown, Suzi Ryan, Christine Norris, Kathy Temean, Anita Nolan, Virginia Upton and Stella Michel, that would be you. :)

Went to see Malificent and enjoyed the retelling of the classic fairy tale from the evil fairy godmother's POV. I couldn't resist. :)

And after a whirlwind vacation to State College, PA for my husband's class reunion and then straight to Bethany Beach, DE for a week I've returned tanned, reinvigorated and ready to join the writing community's many contests.

I jumped into the parody pool over at Michelle H. Barnes's blog with "You're a Grand Old Frog" and I'm giving a shout out to Chuck Sambuchino's  16th Lucky Agent Contest. Of course, I entered. Fingers crossed!
