2017 – A Year of Endings and Beginnings

2017 – A Year of Endings and Beginnings

To say 2017 was an eventful year is an understatement. In some ways—especially the current political climate—it was catastrophically bad, and in others very good. In my little corner of the world, we had ups and downs too. In April, we adopted a third pug, Teddy, but...

A Year For Words

A Year For Words

2017 is going to be an interesting year. In 2015 and 2016, I had new books coming out but this year, I do not (I know! Sad!). However, I do have a new middle grade series beginning in early 2018 which I'm very excited about and a couple surprises in store for 2017 too...

2016 – What A Year

2016 – What A Year

Well, 2016 is nearly over. In some ways that's a blessing, and in others it's pretty darn terrifying. It's impossible to ignore the impact of this year's election. The hate and fear-mongering that plagued it managed to taint even happy, exciting events. So I'm keeping...

It's May! Which means it's finally getting warmer, my birthday is only a couple weeks away, and Ravenous has now been out for almost 3 months (which is just crazy). It also means I'll be crawling out of hibernation to do more events around New England, including a...

Ravenous is out TODAY!

Ravenous is out TODAY!

[template id="9416"] Second books are strange beasts. In some ways they’re easier, because you know what to expect, and in other ways they’re even trickier. There are expectations now from yourself, your publishing house, and your audience. Fortunately, I’ve had the...
