Signing at Los Angeles Festival of Books

For those of you attending the fantastic Los Angeles Festival of Books at the University of Southern California this year, I will be signing copies of my books at the Once Upon a Time booth in the children’s area on Sunday, April 13, starting at 12:30 and going for the next hour or so.  If you’re there, stop on by to say hello.  This will be the first opportunity to get signed copies of Poached — as well as Spy Camp in paperback.

If you live in southern California and you’ve never been to the Festival of Books, you’ve been missing out.  It’s a really wonderful event with tons of things to see and do for all ages.  It’s so big, I honestly have no idea how to tell you how to find the Children’s Area.  Luckily, there are plenty of handy maps posted all over the place.  (And while you’re there, stop by the California Science Center across the street and visit the space shuttle Endeavor.  It’s free!)

    Hi! It was so awesome to meet you at the festival of books (remember me? I was the first in line, haha) and get my book signed. Thanks so much! I was really excited and couldn’t wait to meet you, and I’m really glad I did. I can’t wait for spy school 3 and space case to come out; I’d buy them in a heart beat. :) I’m a huge fan!

    Of course I remember you, Hannah! You don’t forget the first person who drops by the signing!

    Stay posted to this site for more signing events around SoCal, especially once Space Case launches.

    Cool! Hey, can I ask you a question? I always sit down to write a story with all these great ideas in my head, but then I get stuck. What do you do about writers block?

    Hannah -

    I get asked this a lot. I find that the worst thing to do with writer’s block is to just sit in front of my desk waiting for inspiration to come. I like to go for a walk or a hike and work things out while I’m doing that. Other things could work though, whatever it takes to clear your head.

    If you stay stuck, though, sometimes it’s best to set that story aside and focus on something else.
