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 50 published works. 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 release is the chapter book series LOUISE TRAPEZE, from Random House. Books 1 and 2 are out now in paperback, and book 3 will release in hardcover and paperback this September (but you can pre-order your copy now)!
