Authors and Illustrators Unite for It Gets Better!

This video from our fellow authors and illustrators makes us so proud. I’m thrilled to post it here!


Our panel on bullying at BEA

I was thrilled to take the stage during BEA 2011 at the Javits in NYC with the amazing authors Ellen Hopkins, Lisa McMann and Maryrose Wood.  All of these women are contributors to the DEAR BULLY anthology, which will be coming out this September from HarperTeen.

Our lively panel was covered by School Library Journal and Publisher’s Weekly.

It’s getting closer to our pub date and we are beyond thrilled to start hearing bloggers, editors and readers’ reactions to our anthology. Feel free to post here or over on our Facebook page (  Can’t wait to hear your thoughts!

“Perfect,” now an anti-bullying cover song!

If you purchase this song on iTunes, 20% of the proceeds will be donated to the Make Laughter Count foundation (an organization that brings comedians & entertainers together to increase awareness about bullying and raising funds for charities). Do it!
