Tooley Graham came to live with me!

The frog in my new novel, The Fantastic Secret of Owen Jester, is named Tooley Graham.

He arrived at my house!

(Yes, that is iTunes on my computer. But I really was working. I swear. Just took a little iPod break.)

He's a puppet!!

Many, many, many thanks to my jewel of a friend, Grier Jewell. It's no secret: she's fantastic.

That is adorable!

And you are allowed an iTunes break. Every now and again. . .

Not to take anything away from Tooley, but Ruby is just so beautiful. She's a heartbreaker. Maria

Dear Mrs. O'Connor,

We are really loving your book in Charlotte, NC. Tooley is our favorite part, but we are pretty worried about him right now! We hope he feels happier soon!

Thank you for sharing your wonderful work with us!

To Mrs. Felter's class: Thank you for writing to me! I'm so glad you are reading my book and loving it. Yay!

I won't tell you how things turn out with Tooley.
