Thank you for visiting! I hope you'll enjoy finding out about me and my work.
I've written twenty-three books for young readers and one for adults. My first contemporary YA novel, Freefall Summer, just came out! My most recent middle-grade novel, Marabel and the Book of Fate, is a funny fairy tale. My most recent nonfiction book, The Song of Orpheus, retells seventeen little-known (but authentic) Greek myths.
