As some of you know, I've been involved with the International Hip Dysplasia Institute (IHDI) for a number of years. I recently started guest posting book reviews. Two more just went live on their website. To read my reviews for A Guide for Adults with Hip Dysplasia and Anatomy Riot, click here.
I just started reviewing books about hip dysplasia for the International Hip Dysplasia Institute (IDHI). There are quite a few now, which makes me happy! When I wrote The Parents' Guide to Hip Dysplasia I couldn't find any books—just medical journal articles.
My first book review is for Hope, the "Hip" Hippo by Gina Jay and Julie Beattie, illustrated by Cheri Turner. You can my book review here.
For those of you who don't already know, I'm on the Advisory Committee for the IDHI, which is a nonprofit organization. I've helped them out in various ways over the years
I've been working on a new picture book with Erin Garcia. I love the way it's turning out! Here's a sneak peak at one of the illustrations created by the super talented Ivreese. For more information, visit Tiger Livy Project. I'll post again when this book is ready to go live.

It was wonderful to see an actor perform my short story "Bees" at Play On Words San Jose last night. He did a great job. "Bees" is now available as an instant book through Thinking Ink Press.
