There was a time when I didn’t look forward to Mondays, but now I do. After all, it’s time for another #AuthorAcrostics. Let’s welcome author, Laurie Wallmark, and her fantastic books. If you haven’t checked out her work, please head to her website here.
It’s now over a week ago, but my WRAD experience was amazing this year. I loaded all of my events into my Google Calendar so that I could easily find the link to each Zoom or Meet. That was definitely helpful. I also printed off a sheet for each school so I knew which book or poem we were working on. With 7 visits in a row, there wasn’t time in between each one for any hesitation. From Colombia to Queens, El Paso to Midlothian, Virginia, I had a blast creating poems and showing a “sneak peak” of my next children’s book, For Every Little Thing (Eerdmans Publishing), co-authored with June Cotner. It’s safe to say, I can’t wait until next year.
I can’t think of anyone I’d rather hang out with during a New England snow storm than Elly Swartz. If you haven’t read one of Elly’s fabulous books yet, now is the time to start. You can choose from Finding Perfect, Give and Take, or Smart Cookie. If you finish those, her next book, Dear Student, will be coming out in 2022.

Turns out Heidi E.Y. Stemple and I have something in common besides writing for children. When I was younger I vowed I would never be a poet like my mother. Guess what? That didn’t last. And if you read Heidi’s #AuthorAcrostics below, you’ll discover that she had similar thoughts until she turned 28. The rest is history!
What an honor it is to have Nikki Grimes here on Martin Luther King Jr Day for #AuthorAcrostics! If you have read all of Nikki’s books, the good news is there are more fabulous reads coming in 2021. Enjoy!
What I’m loving about #AuthorAcrostics–the amazing talent of all of my visitors. Today I’m grateful to be with Francine Puckly. Her non-fiction book, A Word-a-Day Vocabulary Workbook, hits the stores tomorrow, January 12, 2021. Enjoy!
What a year! One good thing that came out of 2020, tho, was the creation of #AuthorAcrostics. I’ve learned so much about all the participants and their personalities. I’m grateful for my friend, Kristin Nitz, and her visit here this Monday. I hope you have fun reading about her books and adventures. For the full scoop, look here!
Heather and I go way back. Actually I can’t remember when we first met, but we have been together like peanut butter & jelly at so many book signings, or at least like Ling and Lang Inc that we coined our name. A wonderful welcome to #AuthorAcrostics, my friend! You continue to delight readers of all ages. https://www.heatherlangbooks.com/
I’m always amazed at the fun creations my author friends come up with when playing #AuthorAcrosticis. Cynthia Levinson is no exception. And I learn something, too. I never knew she had an affinity to yellow dogs. 🙂 Learn more about Cynthia and enjoy her beautiful website here:
It’s Monday! Batter up…or in this case David A. Kelly is up. I’m excited to welcome him to #AuthorAcrostics. I hope you’ll take time to check out more about David and his books here:
