I love New York! I could never live there, but it's one of my all-time favorite places to visit. This trip, I'm meeting with my agent (who is a sweetheart) and my editor (who I haven't met yet, but who was a joy
to work with on The Penny Tree).
Because of all the buzz surrounding her debut novel, Lottery, Patricia Wood will also be there at the same time, so we decided to stay at the same hotel. I'm not even on the plane yet and she has me exhausted! Between meetings, I plan to drag her over to Ellis Island (which has a walk-on part in The Silver Compass). She wants to explore Central Park (I'm so there for her) and we'll also be meeting a few other authors for lunch (looking forward to it you guys), but more importantly, I can't wait for the break away from my daily grind.
Watch for more posts later this week.
