Michael and Leesie's 10th Anniversary

I'm feeling nostalgic today. I have to archive all the material on my website and put together an all new site. I've used Apple's and before that to host my website and with the advent of the free iCloud they've stopped hosting, so my old site is history! Aaaaaaah!

I'm keeping my same domain so you'll still be able to find me at And I'm transferring and updating the content. I think the new site will be great, but my old site has so much material on it. (And always turns up first on Google searches for me!)

I launched it in 2008 and it hosts my ChatSpot blog, Storm's Story, liv2writ, and an appearances blog. It records my launch tours, first reviews, all my blog tours, and school visits. What to do? What to do? I've decided to rescue all things Michael and Leesie from the website and share it here in new posts and pages.

July will be ten years from the date when Michael first talked on my page during a free-write at Vermont College. I wrote the "Grandmother Poem" that became Leesie's heart and soul during that same residency. Plus, there are parts of the story I've never told, cut scenes I published on my liv2writ blog, and lots of great pictures to make into slideshows. I'm going to try to bring it all together here for you to celebrate Michael and Leesie's 10th anniversary. (I know you're saying, "How could they be 10? TAKEN BY STORM was just published three years ago." Stick around for the story and you'll find out!)

I'm also launching two new blogs, Angela Morrison's liv2writ (for writing tips, news, contests, sneak peaks at new books, and what I'm up to these days), and What's the Opposite of Chewbacca? a blog devoted to the opposite poems I write with kids when I visit their classrooms. Wish me luck! I don't multi-task well. The two new blogs are post-less as I write this. I think I can, I think I can, I think I can!
