      Thanks Tania. I can see how your travels inspired your lovely Riley books. Walking outside your familiar landscape makes you look at things differently – so many ideas out there…

    Hey KathBatt

    Was just lured to your page via Googlemonster. Re-designing my website and looking around at what peeps are doing. Yours is excellent. I like the clean white feel. I just tweeted your NY visual diary entries. Very cool.

    I head there next month for book tour and hoping to do lots of good kids’ lit stuff while I’m there. ANy tips on what not to miss in NYC? I’m looking forward to Peanut Butter & Co in Greenwich Village (

    Hope all is well Lovely.

    Thanks for stopping by Tristan – so glad you like my site. And thanks for the tweet :)

    Hope the book tour goes well – will e-mail you about some stuff to keep an eye out for. Wish I knew about Peanut Butter & Co before I headed over – I’m a bit of a peanut butter fiend…

    Safe travels!
