Send me your MG fantasy, adventure, sci-fi, horror, all the genre stuff! I won’t get too granular listing off the possible sub-genres, because there are SO MANY, but I think you get the gist. Anything that takes someone from our world and shoves them into somewhere new...

It’s August, and that means we’re about a month out from the pub date for The Hotel Between. Just a month! Wow. I’m so excited to share these kids’ stories with you all. 

And because I’m excited, I decided to give all y’all who preorder a copy of The Hotel Between...

In case you haven't heard I've joined Pitch Wars for a second time, only this year I'll be on the other side of the equation. Back in 2015, I was mentored by the brilliant J.A. Souders, and now I get the immense privilege of mentoring someone else for Pitch Wars 2018!...

Pax, by Sara Pennypacker

Pax made me love my pets so much more. And I already loved my animals a lot, so that's saying something.

The Real Boy, by Anne Ursu

The Real Boy grabbed my emotions like few books do.

The Blackthorn Key, by Kevin Sands

The Blackthorn Key hits all the right notes for me. 

I've always had a strong affinity for anything involving alchemy. Fullmetal Alchemist is a guilty pleasure I can always indulge in. The first books I wrote all had an alchemy asp...
