Hello October 2017

I have always loved October. It's the season of colorful leaves, new boots, and delicious Candy Corn

It is also back to school and the return of homework. There's a different routine from the long, slow days of summer. There are also lots of book festivals, apple picking and of course, Halloween

I hope your October is filled with delicious treats, great reads, and crisp, clear days!

Happy Reading!

Hello SWEET Summer 2014!

Can it be that I haven't written here for over a year? I have been a little busy writing Candy Fairies and moving out of New York City up to Westchester County with my family. And now SUMMER is almost here!

Watermelon and lemonade, ice cream and so many cool treats! Long days, beach and pool, camp....Who doesn't love the summer?

I am so excited about my new Candy Fairies book --- lucky #13 Frozen Treats. The book will be in stores June 10th! This book was written as I was packing up our apartment in NYC and I was thinking of my girls off to make new friends. Melli is going to the Ice Cream Isles by herself for an ice cream festival. New fairies, ice cream flavors, floats and messes!

Check out the new book and enjoy a sweet summer!

White, Orange and Yellow!

Happy October! I love this time of year...leaves are changing, pumpkins are around and CANDY CORN is in the store!!! 

There really is nothing like a fresh batch of candy corn.When I wrote CARAMEL MOON, I was imagining a happy harvest of candy candy for Melli the Caramel Fairy. Wouldn't that be supersweet to see?

Hope you have a gooey and delicious Halloween celebration!

Sweet Inspiration

This month I have been visiting lots of schools and book fairs. The number one question people ask me is, "Where do you get your ideas from?" The truth is, I get new ideas everyday and file them away! The trick is to remember....sometimes I take mental pictures and sometimes I snap a photo with my phone :) This is a picture of a famous Frozen Hot Chocolate from the fabulous Serendipity's in New York City. I took my girls here for a special after school treat...YUM! Sure as sugar, you can bet that there will be frozen hot chocolate appearing in Candy Fairies books sometime. The idea is filed away! Sweeeeet!
