What? What? Who Was Just Honored with SCBWI Member of the Year?

Flabbergasted. Seriously. This is the LAST thing I expected. This honor is usually something the recipient(s) know they are getting. We didn't see this coming...at all!


But then, all of a sudden, Steve Mooser is saying mine and Sara Easterly's names. What?



Seriously, we were shocked.

I'll post about this in greater depth later, but I just wanted to say how truly honored I am to recieve this award, that it's much appreicated. and it means a great deal to me.

Unbelievably right on the mark! Completely well-deserved. I've never seen two such incredible Regional Advisers. You guys were/are incredible.

Great job Jolie. This makes perfect sense.
