Oh, hi! Welcome to all things me! I've been working in publishing for ages and ages. I was a children's book editor for nearly a decade, and began writing professionally in 2004. Since then I've written (or ghostwritten) over 40 published works for young readers. I received my MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults from the Vermont College of Fine Arts, and can often be found teaching workshops in writing for young readers. Sometimes I write creepy stories for older teens. Sometimes I write funny stories for early readers. Sometimes I drink too much coffee and spend too much time taking photos of my dog. 

My most recent YA release is AMITY, a horror novel from Egmont USA that published in fall '14. 

Next up is the chapter book series LOUISE TRAPEZE, coming in July '15 from Random House. 

I live and work in Brooklyn, NY, alongside my Emmy Award-winning husband, our daughter, and a finicky French bulldog. It's pretty much the best.
