"So, Samwise Gamgee, Captain Mal and Wash are dueling with lightsabers…"

We have a crap ton of graduation stuff. And I made (most of) it fit.

I wouldn’t call my books gay-themed—just like I wouldn’t call my life gay-themed. I happen to be gay, and Nate is discovering the same is probably true about himself, especially toward the end of the second book. But, I would sooner call these books—and my life—laugh-themed, Broadway-themed, and Chipotle-themed. Nate definitely knows he’s different, but I wanted to write a middle grade character who didn’t feel awful about that. Being possibly gay is about the tenth thing on his mind—below musical theater and macaroni and cheese.

SLJ’s Battle of the Kids’ Books, Round 2

I’ve been remiss in posting every day, but I have been reading… and I’m about 50/50 for round two. What’s surprised me most about these matches is how well realistic fiction has done. Actually, if you look at the final four — Boxers and Saints; Far, Far, Away; P. S. Be Eleven; and The Thing About Luck — only one is truly fantasy.

I think I’m going to pull for my favorite of the four (that would be Boxers and Saints) to win the whole thing, though I still have hopes that Eleanor & Park will come back from the dead. (Still not fantasy, though…)
