#teacher friends! The nice folks at Harper’s Spanish division are working at bringing the Spanish version of Echo’s Sister to America. They wonder if any teachers have developed curriculum for the book. Please let me know if you have or if you are aware of any! Gracias! #mglit #middlegrade

Another look at Sveta Dorosheva’s beautiful sketch that became the cover of Echo’s Sister. If you are ready to read it, the story is ready for you. “...breaks your heart a dozen times over, then patches it back up so that it’s somehow larger than when you started.” @sveta_illustrations #mglit #authorsofinstagram #author #cancersucks #harmonyheals #whatalife

The screen is dark, journal shut as I wait for Harper to give me the last pass pages on Summer and July, wait to hear from my agent on my revisions on Thirty Parks, and feel too hung up with waiting to work further on Carnival Girl. The muse never has me wait, so I should tap the screen, light it up and get to work on Carnival Girl.

We’ve been together 26 years, but today is the 18th anniversary of the day Elvis wed Keri and I. All the good times, all the pain, there’s nobody I’d share it with but you, babe. ♥️

A reader/friend is leaving a few copies of Train I Ride on trains as she travels this summer. She asked me to write something in each of them. #mglit #trainiride #allaboard #Rydr

Always embedding lyrics and fragments from poems in my novels. Here, in Thirty Parks, is an homage to a favorite, The Pennycandystore Beyond the El by Lawrence Ferlinghetti.

One year and one day until the release of Summer and July. I’ll have two, maybe three MG novels complete and in the queue by that time. Until then, here’s a taste. #mglit #surfergirl #harpercollinschildrens

Two who I am missing today— the man who taught me how to be a father, and one of the two who made me a father. ♥️🥑 Love you both.

Drawn in June 2017, 3 months before her 9th birthday, this demonstrates how Harmony was made for drawing graphic novels. Her ability to tell a story without words is stunning. In this case it’s her own story.

When I was a painter I painted you well. Too bad I had to die. Here’s one from 20 years ago. The man who commissioned it just texted me and said he still loves it. Brings back fond memories.

When I see this picture, I see my beautiful daughter at peace, cancer defeated, deflated, while her spirit and love live on. Her most amazing moments came just before this picture was taken, as she fearlessly faced the unknown, raising her eyebrows and squeezing our hands to tell us she understood the love we were pouring out to her. Thank you for sharing our love of Harmony, and walking beside us through her journey. ♥️🥑

My writing friend Lorraine had put away a middle grade manuscript. Then she came across the words of Harmony, who beta read the opening a few months before passing. Encouraged, Lorraine entered it into a contest. It is now in the final round.♥️🥑

Oh, my beautiful Harmony, hidden beneath the mask of cancer, which came so quickly when it came for the last time. This is the last photo of our whole little family, Oreo included, before she passed on May 2. She still had some beauty to give and take, and her most breathtakingly brave moments were her last breaths of this world’s air. I love you, Rebel Girl, and I’d say I miss you, but I know you are here. ♥️🥑
