Grant update: I received one of three Honorable Mentions for the The Speculative Literature Foundation as the winner of the 2016 Working Class Writers Grant! One of the jurors said this about #TheWonderousScience:
"This is gorgeous and very well told. I liked the descriptions, the characterization, and the speed with which the plot began to unfold. There's a delightful sense of fun. A nice job of showing and not just telling. I would absolutely buy this book."

Hey all! Looks like I'll be at Everygreen Middle School's Comic Con again this year! What a great group of students – I love getting a chance to geek out with them. We've been provided this amazing opportunity by our friend, fellow creative, and writing teacher, Sean Fishback. His inspiring students are working on great things in his class, and we look forward to getting a chance to talk about authorship, diversity in publishing, and telling personal and compelling stories. #BelieveInWonder
