The Trick To Travel Packing: Take Only Three Outfits, No Matter How Long the Trip

I’m about to leave on book tour (please come see me!). Every year I post a picture of my compact suitcase, and every year some of you ask me to explain what’s in that suitcase–in other words, how I manage to live out of a tiny suitcase for three weeks, when I have to get up in front of an audience and look halfway presentable every night. I never do answer those questions, because I feel weird talking about clothes. I deeply, seriously, do not care about clothes. Clothes shouldn’t matter, right? It’s what’s...

It’s Time for Another Art Auction

It’s Time for Another Art Auction

In the last year and a half, I’ve held a series of art auctions to benefit groups like Planned Parenthood, Pro Publica, and the American Refugee Committee. With your help, I was able to donate over $9000 to groups that were fighting the good fight. But as we move closer to election season, I know that what matters most is electing good people to office. That’s why I’m dedicating my latest batch of paintings–32 in all–to Swing Left’s Immediate Impact Fund. These funds will go to district races around the...

The Kopps Are Going to Hollywood!

I am beyond thrilled to share the news that Girl Waits with Gun and the rest of the Kopp Sisters series is officially in development for the small screen. Elizabeth Banks’ production company, Brownstone Productions, in partnership with Warner Studios, has made a deal with Amazon for a drama series based on the novels. The project is in the hands of two very funny and talented screenwriters, and I can’t wait to see what they do with it! Read all about it here, and watch this space for more news when I have...

My Art Supplies

Posted by on September 27, 2017 in Paintings | Comments Off on My Art Supplies

If you follow me on Instagram, you might’ve noticed that I’ve been posting a lot of sketches lately. Sketching is a delightful pastime that also happens to be highly portable, especially if you have a small and simple set of art supplies that can go with you everywhere. I get a lot of questions about what art supplies I use, so here’s the answer.  I’m including links to purchase online, but only because you can see a clear photo of each item. I encourage you to buy your supplies locally! Your local art supply store...

Tour dates!

Posted by on August 30, 2017 in Book Tour/Events | Comments Off on Tour dates!

Hi friends! I’m leaving next week for book tour, which is a charming old custom in which writers venture from city to city like traveling salesmen, greeting the townspeople and trying to persuade them to read a book. Won’t you join me in keeping this tradition alive, and persuade a few like-minded friends in the relevant cities to join in? The full details are right here on my website, but I also offer you this lovely tour graphic, suitable for...

Charity Auction for ProPublica

Charity Auction for ProPublica

Ah, technology! I’m holding an eBay auction right now for eight paintings of people reading, with 100% of the money going to the nonprofit ProPublica. But eBay’s having a glitch right now that is making it hard to browse the paintings online. (I actually got someone at eBay on the phone–they are perplexed and working on it) Meanwhile, I’m posting a link here to every painting. It’s a bit tedious to look at them this way, but what can we do about tech glitches? Also, it’s for such a good cause! So here you...

Reading on the Street

Okay, he’s just looking at his phone, but he might be reading some very important investigative journalism from ProPublica. The sale of this and seven other paintings benefit them–go here to bid.   (Oh, and I’m pretty sure he knew how good he looked in those green pants with that red bag and that orange wall across the street.)
