A Child With Cancer Makes Others’ World Series Dreams Come True

It’s been 29 years since the Kansas City Royals have been in the World Series. The last time was 1985–they played and BEAT my favorite team, the St. Louis Cardinals.

Chapter one opens with my main character, 17-year-old Julie, the summer before her senior year, at home alone with her boyfriend, Gus–they’ve been going out for 2 1/2 years. He is ready to have […]

Winning a Book Trailer for Caught Between Two Curses and Announcement

I won a book trailer from Castlelane (http://www.castelane.com/) , which was unbelievably good luck for me because I have a brand new young adult novel out, Caught Between Two Curses. I’ve never had a book trailer before, and I couldn’t be more thrilled with this one.
