Authors Everywhere in Amherst

Okay, so after her artistic debut at the R. Michelson Galleries . . . Photobucket Peepy and I did lots of other fun authorial stuff in the Northampton, MA area. Photobucket "Like what? What did you do?" you ask, or I ask, or we can pretend Colin Firth as Mr. Darcy asked. Photobucket Why, here's a small sampling. We worked on a novel at the Mount Holyoke College library and feigned being at Hogwarts, which was probably really distracting when we leapt on the table and shouted, "expecto patronum!" Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket We explored the library . . . Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket We ate lunch with Ellen Wittlinger and then ate another lunch with Jarrett Krosoczka (on a different day) . . . Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket But while we were waiting for Jarrett, we ran into Grace Lin and Little Brown editor Alvina Ling!!! Photobucket Then we met more Blue Rose Girls, Anna Alter and Libby Koponen . . . Photobucket Later, we went to Emily Dickenson's house, but no one was home . . . Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket So then we went to Tony DeTerlizzi's house and even though he and his wife Angela hid, we knew they were inside. And finally, so were we . . . Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket (That's actually stuff from the Spiderwick movie!) Photobucket The bathroom was delightful. Um, if you can say that about a bathroom . . . Photobucket Photobucket (Famous artists made their marks, so to speak.) Then Tony brought out the really cool stuff . . . Photobucket Yes! He made a set of Winnie-the-Pooh and friends when he was in college. It seems we are both HUGE Pooh fans! Here's some of my collection . . . Photobucket Now, being the kind person I am, I gave this lovely front-back-both-arms-deer-art shirt to Mr. DiTerlizzi . . . Photobucket And he gave these to me!!!!! Photobucket (He doesn't know it yet, though.) While we were trying to figure out how we could hide Pooh and his pals in my purse, Scott Fischer stopped by and distracted us . . . Photobucket Oh, hey! (How's that for a smooth transition?) Here's a recent interview I did over at Author Turf! Next blog . . .
