Running Down a Dream...@NESCBWI

I'm off to Springfield this weekend for the (deep breath) New England Society of Children's Books Writers and Illustrators Spring Conference (and inhale).  After spending plenty of long post-teaching hours working on my portfolio, I will finally have the opportunity to share it.  Yikes!  Summoning up inner strength.  Reminding myself that this is a marathon, not a sprint.  Deep breath.  Exhale slowly.  Deep breath.  Exhale slowly.  Etc. Etc.

Pictured above are two pieces created recently for my portfolio.  They will serve to remind me that if a little girl can run down and capture bunny monsters, then surely I can run down and capture a book deal. :)
