Write This! in SCBWI Insight

I am so pleased that a sample of my writing was one of to 20 submissions chosen to be in the on-line gallery of SCBWI’s August issue of Insight Write This!

The August prompt was: In 50 words or less, create a narrative description of the weather which sets a mood for suspense, mystery and intrigue. Here is what I wrote:

Thanks, SCBWI! This made my day!  Thanks, Greg  Cook, for help editing, and thanks, Dan Moynihan, for encouraging me to join up!
