California, Kauai, New York and Canada

I've visited Carver Elementary in San Marino before and have always had a blast.


Recently, I was so flattered to learn that three of the students selected me for their "Famous Californian" report.

Though, I loved reading what they wrote, my favorite parts were the portraits . . .




Something else that was delivered to my mail box not too long ago was a petition. It was a first for me -- because it was a petition for me to write more books about Kanani Akina, the 2011 American Girl from Kauai . . .


I won't be writing more Kanani books, however, there is good news for American Girl fans. I just finished an online story about Kanani visiting her cousin Rachel in New York! (Here's what happened when I visited NY and the American Girl Store.)


Say, what's that? Why, it's my outline for Kanani's story . . .


I know it looks like a mess, but it really helped me! Kanani's serialized story will only be available online and for the great price of . . . FREE!!! To read about her adventures in the Big Apple, check the American Girl website, starting at the end of July!

I'll be sure to post a link here on my blog when the story debuts.

In the meantime, many of you know that I adore off-beat art. Not too long ago, I went to the MorYork Gallery in Los Angeles. This is what I saw . . .

Everything you see above is made from recycled materials, like jigsaw puzzle pieces. CLICK HERE for more examples!

And look at this art collection -- oh, wait! Those are some of my Winnie-the-Poohs. Yes, I have the second largest collection in the United States. (Or at least I did when I last checked.)


Most of MY COLLECTION is now housed in the White River Heritage Museum in White River, Canada. I'll tell you about it some time.
