Hi everyone,

My Featured Guest tomorrow will be Greg Pincus. Greg is one of those people who can keep a lot of projects going at the same time, and he does them all well. Take a look at this brief bio that Greg provided and you’ll see what I mean.

I was happy that Greg included me in his April 2010 Thirty Poets Thirty Days feature. Here’s the link to my day on his site. .

Greg Pincus is a poet, novelist, screenwriter, volunteer elementary school librarian, and social media consultant.

He’s also a blogger, writing about children’s literature and poetry at GottaBook ( ) and the social web at The Happy Accident ( ).

Through the wonders of social media, he’s sold poetry, helped himself land a book deal, ended up in the New York Times, the Washington Post, School Library Journal (multiple times), and many other interesting places… and also made friends and gotten free cookies on more than one occasion.He bats and throws righty.
