Jane Peddicord

I had the distinct pleasure of lunching at Katz’s today with new Austin author Jane Peddicord, who has picture books under contract with Charlesbridge and Harcourt. She was fun and friendly, and full of questions about the author’s life. (Also another recovering lawyer).

More personally, Stephanie sent me the most gorgeous scarf–knitted herself. It’s a deep fuschia/burgundy pink, soft and fuzzy, along with two books on grieving. Such a sweetheart.

Planning to watch the presidential debates with Greg tonight.

So far, no keying in changes on the new mss, but the day is young. I have hope still.
