Janiece Hopper Janiece Hopper's blog:
In my novels, there always seems to be at least one character who reflects my passion for nurturing young readers. I love stories about special moments in the reading life—when readers know they belong to the Literati. What a glorious word! To some I suppose it sounds a little snobbish, but it do...

Jena Ball Jena Ball's blog:
I have loved and identified with Robert Frost’s poem, “The Road Not Taken” for more than 30 years.

I just finished reading a series of books by ED Baker, and I can't wait to read more of her work. I literally spent the day searching the shelves at the library for more books by her! Her work is perfect for middle grade readers, and I highly recommend her.

So at this time, I am only committing to three signings a year. Being from Alaska, they take a lot of effort and travel time for me, and I have a day job, which is hard to get away from, not to mention the fact that I am moving late next year.

While backpacking through Europe during the summer of 1988, I stumbled upon the World War 1 memorial at Vimy Ridge. I had no idea what hallowed ground I was standing on. In fact, at the time, I had no knowledge that I was standing on Canadian soil. Poised at the base of the memorial, I must have... Read more of this blog post »
