HIGHLIGHTSnamed me their Author of the Month for my story "Crickets (CRASH!) and a Birthday Bash" (Jan. 2011)! This funny story is extra special to me, because it was also a winner of Highlight's 2009 Fiction Contest! Help me celebrate by telling me your favorite birthday memory in the comments below. On March 1, I'll pick a random winner and give them a gift subscription to the magazine I've loved since I was a little girl (back when the dinos roamed the earth ;) Anyone may enter!
