The 2022 Poughkeepsie Book Festival Flier

It’s Book Festival Time in Poughkeepsie…

It’s Book Festival time and I am so excited to finally be returning to in-person events. One of my favorite places to hang out is the Poughkeepsie Book Festival and this year there will be over 40 authors and illustrators (covering reading ages from preschool to Young Adult), costumed book characters such as Elephant and Piggie, Esteban the Magnificent from The Day the Crayons Came Home, Curious George, and more! There will also be fun crafts and activities for the kids. Signed books will be available for purchase.

Where to go and when to be there…

Saturday, April 2, 10 am to 4 pm

Poughkeepsie High School–70 Forbus Street, Poughkeepsie, NY

I’ll be signing copies of TOUCHING THE SURFACE and would love to hang out with you.

Experience the afterlife in this lyrical, paranormal novel that will send your heart soaring.

When Elliot finds herself dead for the third time, she knows she must have messed up, big-time. She doesn’t remember how she landed in the afterlife again, but she knows this is her last chance to get things right.


Elliot just wants to move on, but first, she will be forced to face her past and delve into the painful memories she’d rather keep buried. Memories of people she’s hurt, people she’s betrayed…and people she’s killed.


As she pieces together the secrets and mistakes of her past, Elliot must find a way to earn the forgiveness of the person she’s hurt most, and reveal the truth about herself to the two boys she loves…even if it means losing them both forever.

Praise for TOUCHING THE SURFACE…
