The Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators is a wonderful organization that connects authors, illustrators, editors, agents and publishers from around the world. I am proud and very happy to announce that I won the 2014 SCBWI Magazine Merit Award for my non-fiction article The Poppy Lady that appeared in Highlights for Children last November.
