I'm so excited to finally be able to announce that Sterling Publishing will publish my picture book DIVA DELORES AND THE OPERA HOUSE next spring. The announcement ran today in PW.  Here's a little blog post to celebrate!  https://laurasassitales.wordpress.com/2017/07/13/good-news-picture-book-deal/  :flowers2
