What's New?
What's new? Well, so far this year ...
I have a brand new book releasing on March 24th. Things I'll Never Say: Stories About Our Secret Selves is an anthology for teen readers that I edited (and contributed to) featuring stories by these favorite authors: Kerry Cohen, Louise Hawes, Varian Johnson, erica l. kaufman, Ron Koertge, E. M. Kokie, Chris Lynch, Kekla Magoon, Zoƫ Marriott, Katy Moran, J. L. Powers, Mary Ann Rodman, Cynthia Leitich Smith, Ellen Wittlinger
My recent book, Adopted Like Me: My Book of Adoption Heroes, is for children ages 8 and up. Did you know that Bo Diddley, Nelson Mandela, and Marilyn Monroe were all adopted? Reading their stories will help you believe: You can grow up to be just about anything you want to be!
I'm contributing to The Pirate Tree, a blog focused on social justice and children's literature. Head on over and take a look. In addition to my essays, you'll find articles by Nancy Bo Flood, Varian Johnson, E.M. Kokie, Lynn Miller-Lachmann, Peter Marino, and J. L. Powers.
