I Love You for Miles and Miles

My new picture book, I Love You for Miles and Miles, released on 12/26/17.

Look, there it is on the shelf!

Bigger than the biggest truck-sized thank yous go to fabulous editor Janine O’Malley, rockstar agent Kathleen Rushall, and the very talented illustrator Mike Yamada!

Launch events

I launched the book at my amazing local indie, Porter Square Books.


My second event was hosted by the wonderful O’Neill Branch of the Cambridge Public Library.


We ate cookies,


made vehicle valentines,


and posed for pictures with the book cover.


I’m grateful to family members, friends, writers, and kids for celebrating with me!

I have several other events coming up in MA and NJ, including some where I’m teaming up with stellar picture book authors and illustrators. I hope you’ll join me if you’re nearby!

News & Reviews

Thanks also to many generous writers who have reviewed this book and helped send it out into the world. I Love You for Miles and Miles is a Notable New Picture Book on the Barnes & Noble Kids blog, an Amazon editors’ pick, and was featured in The Story Behind the Book column in The Boston Globe!



Some other highlights from this past month include the little girl who at my first reading raised her hand and asked me to read it again, the grandmother who had me sign copies for all of her grandchildren, and the pictures friends have shared of their kids with I Love You for Miles and Miles.
