Hey how are you? Welcome to my website. There’s some new pictures of me if you are looking for a laugh. And that’s the cover of my new book over there. The first time I saw it I went, Whoa! The book is coming out in the spring – May, I think. You can probably order a copy now. Or soon. Or wait for it to come out and get a copy from the library. Whatever.

My publicists despair. I’m on Facebook but I hardly ever visit my page. I did post a retraction a while ago, after some friends gave me thumbs-ups on a picture which I did not post. Maybe I sleep-uploaded it. Maybe I was identity hacked. Maybe I should care more. If the world is divided into worriers and shruggers, I am definitely a shrugger. As far as I can tell, the status of everything in my life is complicated and, well, so what?
Marthe and I spent a year trying to surprise each other as we wrote this. The basic idea is that a boy and a girl fall through a portal into a steam-punk adventure drawn by the girl’s wacky Uncle Viminy.
