Heading to Gotham for a morning visit to Sally Doherty and the people at Holt/McMillan, publishers of my children's books, due out at the beginning of 2011. I'm coming back the same day. Then returning to New York in a week or so for a few days of hanging around, visiting friends I haven't seen, visiting my daughter Emma, hitting plays and museums, and heading for Dim Sum in Chinatown. But that's down the road. Today, just meeting the people who will publish my children's books, a new direction I am very happy about.
