Where have I been?

Creating a new website. That’s where.

Also the holidays and then family vacation and the work I needed to catch up on after the family vacation.

But I’m hoping to launch the new site — minus the old pen name — soon. I’ll leave this one up for a bit, and I do hope you all will be kind enough to follow me to the new site, when it’s up and running. In the meantime, I continue to tweet interesting things (and occasional links to my day-job articles) at @mdcroft. Friendly waves are welcome.

One small note: I’m delighted that “The Girl Who Drank the Moon” was one of the Newbery winners this year, because I loved that book. It’s a proper sort of epic.

Another small note: It seems to me that books that feature compassion, and kindness, and celebrating differences might be especially needed this year. I’ll be seeking them out.
