"Oh you're so silent, Jens..."

...And maybe I am, maybe I am"
-Jens Lekman, Black Cab (Swedish songwriter)

Yes indeed, I have been a small, silent, holiday break-taking, technology hide-and-seek player! Alas, all pleasures must come to an end. I return next week with a new bag of tricks!

Until then please enjoy this vignette from my upcoming children's book Percy and TumTum: A Tale of Two Dogs, due out this Spring from RunningPressKids!

This is kind of how I feel about being on vacation, except on vacation I am usually smiling and have a glass of wine and a smörgåsbord in front of me, and am surrounded by nice people who don't want to lock me up in a cage.
