Some Saturday This and Thats!

First off, congratulations and a mighty Woo-HOO to our lovely regional illustrator coordinator, Susan Detwiler for her wonderful interview with Kathleen Temean (the SCBWI New Jersey Regional Advisor.) on her Writing & Illustrating blog “Illustrator Saturday” feature! Wow, I loved learning about your drawing process, from sketches to final copy, Susan. And your artwork is absolutely GORGEOUS!! 

Susan had another marvelous moment last Saturday when a box containing copies of her new book from Sylvan Dell, ON THE MOVE, arrived on her doorstep!


Imagine seeing hundreds of the same type of animal gathered at the same place at the same time! Right here in North America, many animals gather in huge numbers at predictable times and locations. Not all migrations are tied to seasonal food changes some are tied to life cycles. Certain birds, reptiles, mammals, amphibians, fish, and even insects migrate during spring, summer, fall, or winter. Travel along with them as you learn about what puts these animals On the Move.
Wonderful, Susan, ON THE MOVE both looks and sounds fantastic! Congratulations! 🙂


Also, we have a member from Baltimore who is hoping to car pool with someone to next weekend’s conference at the Bishop Claggett Center in Adamstown. If you’re from the Baltimore area and have room in your vehicle, please contact me at and I’ll forward your email.


One more thing for all you Frederick, Maryland residents! We have a regional member who lives in Silver Spring, but is considering moving to Frederick. She would love to hear from writers what it’s like to live in Frederick! If you would like comment, please forward to the above email and I send it to her.

Thanks, and have a great weekend!
