>Just a short post from Wordfest. It’s an absolutely wonderful festival. I was able to share the stage with Shane Peacock (buy his young Sherlock books now!) and Marty Chan (Get his books, too–very hilarious!!). They both were brilliant and if you ever get a chance, ask Shane about crows. He has lots of stories. Oh, and ask Marty about the time he dressed up in his mom’s bathrobe to practice kung fu (he was a kid at the time). The second part of the festival is out in Banff and I’m enjoying just staring at the mountains and seeing a few authors (like Marie-Louise Gay). Ooops, better go. I’m off to a program that features Cecil Castellucci. I’m hoping she can teach me how to be hip.
