Thanks for stopping by! Since you're visiting my site, I assume you love books and reading . . . maybe even writing. I've been writing since I was nine years old. My favorite thing to do back then was watch a TV show and then rewrite the episode with myself included as a young character. Great fun! I'd still do it if I had time. But now I'm too busy writing middle grade novels instead. Take a minute to meet twelve year old Poppy Parker, a young girl whose passion for dogs helps her cope with some huge personal upheavals, in my latest novel, A Million Ways Home (now out in paperback!). Visit my Books page to read a summary and see what readers are saying about it. While you're there, take a minute to meet spunky, sweet Piper Lee DeLuna, the star of my debut novel, A Smidgen of Sky. The last thing Piper wants is a step-dad or bratty step-sister, and she's determined to stop her mama from remarrying at any cost! And now you can continue Piper Lee's adventures in the sequel, A Sliver of Sun. Surf around the site to find out more about me, to see pictures of my two adorable dogs and pictures of my book events, or to read a free short story or article. Thanks so much for visiting!
