Christian Robinson and I are hitting the road in October to promote our new collaboration, Carmela Full of Wishes. (**The book will be available in both Spanish and English!)

In a time when folks speak openly of building walls and exclusivity, I was moved to tell the story of one young Dreamer, Carmela, who is filled with hope and heart and just a little dash of sass — like any other girl her age. Carmela Full of Wishes is the book I’ve always dreamed of putting into the world, and I’m so honored that the brilliant Christian Robinson is the one who has brought it to life.

If we’re coming through a town near you, we’d love to share the book with you in person! (Click on links for more details.)
