Pleasant Surprises

Last year at this time I was job hunting and working on whatever freelance assignments I had managed to snag. Back then, I was taking most anything offered, and fortunately two of my regular editors at Rosen Books came through with work.

I did the research, wrote the books and collected the checks.

Yesterday, I came home to find a box from Rosen with my author copies of In the News: Suicide Bombers and Cutting Edge Careers: Artificial Intelligence. I flipped through both, marveling all over again how good the Rosen designers are. I’m proud of these books, distilling complicated subjects into things middle and high school students might benefit from reading.

I like these pleasant surprises and the reminders of why I so enjoy the variety of work I’ve done on the last year.
