Greetings! Royal Wedding Disaster, the second book in my new series for middle grade readers, is almost here, and I’m SO EXCITED about it.
And it’s not just because once again, I wrote and illustrated it myself, or because Book #1 is going to be out in paperback at the same time (May 10). No, there’s more.
But first I have to fill you in on everything else that’s been going on, in chronological order (I know this would be much easier if I just posted more often, but I’m much too l...

Well, it’s March, which means a lot of different things people.
To some, March means the beginning of spring, which means Spring Break (which of course to me will forever mean my Significant Objects short story aboutgetting my wisdom teeth removed).
To others (okay, to He Who Shall Not Be Named In This Blog), March means college basketball season.
(HWHSNBNITB wants you to know that the Indiana Hoosiers are this year’s Big 10 Men’s Champions.)
But for people in publishing, March is when “we c...

Exciting news for all you Mediator lovers (and even those of you not familiar with the series):
There’s a book trailer for Remembrance . . . the first ever book trailer in the Mediator series!
Andit’s AMAZING (even if I do say so myself):
Okay, okay, I know it’s not quite as long as some of you might have wanted . . . but I think it’s perfect! Thanks so much to Janey (whose idea it was), the team at Harper, andmy awesome friend Brady! He makes the best b...

Happy new Year! 2015 is finally making its way out the door, and I don’t know about you, but I’m not too sorry to see it go, kind of the way I feel about house guests who’ve over stayed their welcome.
But there were definitely some good things about 2015, am I right? Remember this?
This was fun, too:
But what stood out most to me about 2015 was that it was a GREAT year for books, TV shows, and movies written by or about women.
That’sdefinitely something to be remembered/celebrat...

This has been the craziest fall so far here at Casa Cabot.
First of all, I just got back from Brazil, where they released Royal Wedding and a new version of The Princess Diaries with a brand new forward (by recently married Brazilian author Paula Pimento, who invited me to her wedding! How fofinha is she??)
Itwas so much fun to meet so many awesomereaders like these:
And it was amazing to see copies of the newest Princess Diaries books on theshelves.
I visited a new city every day, but I di...

Every year teachers let me know that the post below about my experience living in Manhattan a few dozen blocks from the World Trade Center on 9/11 has become part of their classroom curriculum, so I continue to post it annually.
Recent studies, however, have shown that many classrooms don’tteach about 9/11 at all, due to the fact thatit’s “too controversial and emotional,” and that it also isn’t a subject covered in text books and on standardized tests, so time constraints forbid it.

Hello, readers, royals, and mediators! It’s been such a fun, busy summer. I’ve had a great time seeing (and hearing from) so many of you during my 15th Anniversary Princess Diaries tour to celebrate the releases of Royal Wedding and From the Notebooks of a Middle School Princess!
But guess what? It’s not over yet. I’ve still got a few more (national and international) stops to make in September and October!
Read on to see if I’ll be visiting a town near you (unless of course you’re my mother...

Today isthe official wedding day of Mia and Michael (according to the royal invitation in Princess Diaries #11, Royal Wedding).
To celebrate, I’m drinkingtrying to be a little kinder to everyone I know (including myself). As Mia mentions in the book, the reason people loveweddings (and brides) so much is because they’re symbols of hopefulness in a world that sometimes seems filled with sadness and despair.
So here’s a link to Mia and Michael’sWedding Play List. Dance along with me and all the...

I can’t believe it’s been a decade and a half since we first metthat so not-ready-for-royalty princess, Mia Thermopolis, andsix yearssince we last saw a book about about her! She–and we–have come a long way since then, from barely passing Algebra, to that first kiss from Michael, to saving Genovia, her kingdom, from financial ruin!
And now they’re here at last:Royal Wedding, the first adult installment in the series that so many readers have been waiting for (and those who aren’t familiar wi...
