Forget New Year's Resolutions...They're Always Broken Anyway


Did you know that nearly 50% of people make new year's resolutions, but only 8% will follow through with them.

So this year I'm skipping the resolutions, and well, I guess I'll just see what happens. 



But that doesn't mean that I don't have some fun and exciting things planned for the upcoming year..(I'm just not spending precious time on all those unrealistic goals I try to set and never follow each year.)

Here are my Upcoming events for 2014

Colorado Teen Literature Conference, Denver, Colorado

I am so excited to report that I will be on the local author panel for this year's 
Colorado Teen Literature Conference held on April 5, 2014 at the Tivoli, Auraria Campus in Downtown Denver with keynote speakers David Levithan and A.S. King.

I will also be presenting two different presentations at the conference. (More on that to come!)


"The Colorado Teen Literature Conference is a yearly event held in Colorado to promote and celebrate teen literature. The conference offers diverse sessions thanks to the willingness of knowledgeable librarians, teachers, authors, and teens who share their expertise for the event.
We believe that quality literature for teens and young adults is available in ever increasing amounts, but is under-publicized and under-utilized in many literacy development efforts directed to teens. Because of this, the conference focuses attention on significant authors, their writing, and methods for incorporating this literature in teaching and in library outreach programs."

Sign up for the Colorado Teen Literature Conference is going on now at http://coteenlitconf.org/ Hope you can make it! I would love to see you there.

January is National Stalking Awareness Month


More on this in the coming days and weeks. Join me and raise awareness on the issue of stalking.


February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness month


Once again, throughout the month of February I will be raising awareness about teen dating violence. Join me as I join forces with organizations such as Love is Respect.org and Break the Cycle.org to bring light to this devastating issue of teen violence.
