What could be better than seeing your newest book at ALA with your agent and your editor! Thanks, ladies. You both made this journey a fun ride.


Testimonials

  • As a fifth grade writing teacher, I was lucky enough to take part in a three-day summer writing workshop by Lola before my second year of teaching. It is absolutely incredible how much my instruction has improved. One hundred percent of my students work during class for nearly the whole period because of Lola’s suggestion of self-selected topics. The depth of their writing is incredible.

    Thanks, Lola!
