Check back soon for more updates on my new books!
Some of the Parts ~ coming in 2016 from Knopf Books for Young Readers
Tallie McGovern is determined to get back to normal after a devastating car accident claimed her brother's life, but just when she might be ready to say goodbye, she's hit with a bombshell: her brother's organs were donated and one of the recipients wants to talk. As Tallie's quest to find the other recipients intensifies, her grip on reality starts to loosen, bringing her to one harrowing moment...
Garcia and Colette ~ illustrated by Andrew Joyner ~ coming in 2017 from Putnam
My picture book debut! When Garcia and Colette can't agree on whether outer space or the deep sea is better, there's only one way to settle the argument: build a submarine and a rocket and take separate trips in each. But the two friends quickly learn that their favorite places have a lot in common...and that being alone isn't so great.
Bad Guy ~ illustrated by Mike Yamada ~ coming in 2017 from Simon & Schuster
My second picture book debut! The story of one boy who is good at being bad...until his little sister shows him the consequences. Because not every bad guy is a GUY.
