What’s Up In Washington?

Wednesday, January 28th, 2009

Hi Everybody!

Since the inauguration of president Obama, all eyes are on Washington D.C.  It is an exciting place to be and you will never guess who is going there . . . Mallory!  She and her class are taking a trip to our nation’s capital and you can read all about it in the latest Mallory book, Red, White, and True Blue Mallory.  

I hope you’ll read it and I hope you have as much fun as Mallory in Washington, D.C.

Talk to you soon!

Hi Everybody,

I received so much mail from so many of you over the holidays.  And it was from so many different places!

To Nicole in Singapore:  What a great blog you have and thank you for putting my books on it.  You are super cool!

To Victoria in Illinois:  Thanks for all the great mail.  If you or your friends want to send me a letter, just address it to:

To Mallory in Texas:  First, I love your name!  Second, I visit a lot of schools.  If you think your school might be interested, you can show your teacher or librarian the Mallory website and they can get all of the information they need right here.

And to Molly, Tara, Leah, Becca, Alayna, Nancy, Kylie, Eni and  everyone else, thanks so much for writing.  Hearing from all of you was a great way to start the new year!  Be sure to check around the blog for answers to some of your questions.

Talk to you soon!

Hi Everybody!

Can you believe it is 2009?!?  I sure can’t!  I hope your year is off to a great start.  I know a lot of you went back to school today.  I hope winter break was lots of fun and that getting back into the swing of things wasn’t too tough.  

Did any of you make any resolutions?  I did.  If you want to write and share your resolutions with me, I’d love to hear them.  Let me know if you’d like me to publish them on the blog.

Here’s a great, big, giant wish that you all have a very happy new year!

Talk to you soon!
