Happy New Year!

Happy New Year, everybody! I can’t believe how fast the fall semester flew by! I was flying all over myself, talking about writing from New York to Montana to Seattle and back again. I also answered some questions about sequels on the Tollbooth blog in November for an interview that the wonderful author Michelle Knudsen conducted on the topic.

September News

Hello and welcome back to school! I’m incredibly excited this month because The Nina, The Pinta and the Vanishing Treasure got nominated for an award—the 2012 Young Hoosier Book Award, to be exact! Three cheers for all the Young Hoosiers—and their teachers and librarians—in Indiana! Also, if you’re reading this page while in Indiana and want me to come visit your school or library, please email me so we can set something up!

Very Busy
