Meet Liz from Sofa Stories
News: I'll have a table at the Contra Costa Con 5 on Sunday, March 12th in Concord, CA! Come say hi and draw something on my table. There will be books. Whee!
Meanwhile in Antarctica:
Many thanks to my friend Sumalee Montano for shouting out Sloth and Manatee's little tiny theme song this week - you may have seen her on TV in The Lost Symbol and she's currently in Quantum Leap - and many thanks also to my brother for sending me a peaceful photo of his friend's kid enjoying Ocean Adventure. Seeing these characters cruising around out there, and hearing back from you all, makes all the difference in the galaxy. Thank you!

Liz spent thirty-three years in the public school system. First, as a teacher’s aide for a couple of years; then a substitute social studies and English teacher traveling all over the district for a few years; then settling in as a 7th grade English teacher at McKinley Junior High for a decade; and finally Assistant Principal at the same place until her retirement last year. Along the way, she'd gone from a nervous, tentative, dare-she-say even scared teaching college grad to a confident, mature woman who could de-escalate the rowdiest of situations with both students and parents. And yet, sitting here, at age 65, ready to introduce herself to her siblings as Liz, was the first time she understood what it was like to feel fierce.
