Well readers, here we are! You've reached the end of the online archive of SMILE.

That's right...I'm (sadly) ceasing online posting of SMILE pages from here on out, because SMILE is coming to print!!

SMILE: A Dental Drama is going to be published as a complete graphic novel by Scholastic/Graphix, the same publisher who has been putting out my Baby-sitters Club graphic novel adaptations for the past 3 years. I am very, very excited about this! The book will be full-color, and will clock in at about 220 pages--so you will be able to read the conclusion to my dental story, once it's in print. I'll also be expanding some of the existing material. The current archives have been edited slightly, and everything you see here is going to stay as it is. Readers will continue to be able to read about the beginnings of my dental drama online, and I'll continue to post news and updates about the forthcoming book right here on this page.

I am very grateful to my readers and supporters over the years, as SMILE has been posted week by week and so many of you have read along, sent emails relating to my story, given me guest art and comics, written me kind letters, and told me that the comic has inspired them. What started out as a way for me to deal with an accident from my past has ballooned into something very special and personal. Thank you so much for this opportunity.

So! New readers to the series can start here. If you are interested in regular updates from me about SMILE and the other things I'm working on, you can find me in several places:

And of course, you can always email me with any questions, comments, requests, or suggestions.

Thanks again, and keep smiling!

I love your books so much. When you came to my school to present, I was astonished about how you became who you are today. Good Luck in your career!
