Harlequin Teen will publish my YA novel The Stepsister's Tale in July. New York Times bestselling author Ruta Sepetys calls this a "brilliant and innovative retelling of a classic that gives entirely new meaning to the term 'Cinderella story.'"

Thank you for visiting!
I hope you'll enjoy finding out about me and my work. I've published nineteen books for young readers and one for adults. My most recent book, Dark of the Moon, is a retelling of the Minotaur myth. My twentieth book and tenth novel, The Stepsister's Tale, is a Cinderella retelling (with a new twist, I promise!) slated for publication in June, 2014, by Harlequin Teen. It will be followed in 2015 by another fairy-tale retelling, tentatively titled Mirror (bet you can guess which fairy tale it's based on!).
