In the summer of '98 my family took a trip to NYC. I took this pic of my daughters.

I remember.

Ava, Armida, and Tyne atop the World Trade Center, 1998.

A few pics from our first ever book festival exhibit. Saturday I wore the green shirt, Sunday I went Oscar Bronx style with the porkpie hat and shades. The guy interviewing me was Rich Casanova, whose "Podcast World Tour" supports cochlear implants for deaf kids. Best customers of the weekend not only engaged in a delightful conversation and bought both books, but the girl with the headphones actually sang along to "House on Fire." That was cool. And last, there are pics of me with my chief editor, Armida, and my cover artist, Ava.
