What's new? There are a lot of new things brewing in bookland, and I can’t wait until I can share more details! In the meanwhile, mark your calendars for the release of my next book—and my first young adult novel—the science fiction thriller PARADOX, coming out June 28, 2013, from Random House Books for Young Readers.
March 3, 2012 If you're in the New Jersey area on Sunday, March 3rd, come on over to the Sparkhouse, where I will be reading from, discussing, and signing NOWHERE GIRL as part of a Middle Grade Symposium for World Read-Aloud Day, along with fellow authors Audrey Vernick and Olugbemisola Rhuday-Perkovich. Hope to see you there!
January 15, 2012 I have some big news: not one, but TWO new books are on the horizon! First is a middle-grade novel, DAHLIA’S RULES FOR GHOSTING, which will be coming out from Walker in spring 2013. And next, a brand new picture book: HULLABALOO, a sesquipedalian celebration, will be coming out from Clarion Books. I’m thrilled these books will soon be available for all to read!
September 25, 2011 A huge thanks to all those who came together in Burlington, VT, to make the Burlington Book Festival's Youthapalooza a resounding success. An eclectic assortment of authors, much enthusiastic book-talk, not to mention panels and book sales and signings galore. Could a day be any more awesome? I think not.
September 18, 2011 It was party time at Newtonville Books today, when family, friends, and brand-new readers gathered to help me celebrate the release of my debut middle-grade novel NOWHERE GIRL. Much laughter, mingling, and cupcakes were had enjoyed by all!
