FULL DISCLOSURE: I am not a baker. I’m more of a cook.
Shaun legitimately just said to me today, “I’ve never seen anyone cook like you. You’re so good.”
And I said, “What about your mom and stuff?
And he paused and said, “Yeah. They were good cooks.”
And I said, “What’s different then?”
And he said, “Well, they follow directions.”
He quickly started laughing because he realized how mean that sounded. So, we’re still married.
Anyway. I’m not so good at following directions and baking? Baking usually requires that. So Buckeye Balls are one of my go-to recipes because they are easy.
Man Verdict: I LOVE THESE.
Dog Verdict: WE LOVE PEANUT BUTTER. NO CHOCOLATE THOUGH.
Me Verdict: These are good, But my hands feel weird.

People call it a cross between Harry Potter and Percy Jackson but it’s set in Maine. It’s full of adventure, quirkiness and heart.
The Spy Who Played Baseball is a picture book biography about Moe Berg. And… there’s a movie out now about Moe Berg, a major league baseball player who became a spy. How cool is that?
It’s awesome and quirky and fun.

I am super psyched to be teaching the six-month long Write. Submit. Support. class at the Writing Barn!
Are you looking for a group to support you in your writing process and help set achievable goals? Are you looking for the feedback and connections that could potentially lead you to that book deal you’ve been working towards?
Our Write. Submit. Support. (WSS) six-month ONLINE course offers structure and support not only to your writing lives and the manuscripts at hand, but also to the roller coaster ride of submissions: whether that be submitting to agents or, if agented, weathering the submissions to editors.
Past Write. Submit. Support. students have gone on to receive representation from literary agents across the country. View one of our most recent success stories here.
