zinnia and the bees book trailer!

I’m interrupting regularly scheduled programming because my debut middle grade novel, Zinnia and the Bees, has a book trailer, and I’m so excited to share it with you!


Enormous thanks to the following wonderful people who made this happen:

Emily Arrow, dear dear friend and gifted songwriter, for the original “Zinnia and the Bees” song that perfectly captures Zinnia’s journey.

Meiko Takechi Arquillos, brilliant photographer, for giving her time and talents to the project.

Stevie Nemazee, animator and puppeteer extraordinaire, for generously lending her skills.

And Todd Davis, my honey, for dreaming this up and making Zinnia and those bees come to life with paper and buttons and imagination.


Look for Zinnia and the Bees August 1st from Capstone. And it’s available for pre-order now! In fact, if you pre-order a copy, I’ll send you some snail mail goodies to thank you! All the details here
