Doing research for Freefall Summer!

Thank you for visiting! I hope you'll enjoy finding out about me and my work.

I've written twenty-four books for young readers and one for adults. Freefall Summer, my first contemporary YA novel, is (loosely!) based on my own experiences as a skydiver (read the first chapter here). My most recent middle-grade novel, Marabel and the Book of Fate, is a funny fairy tale. The Song of Orpheus, my most recent nonfiction, retells seventeen little-known (but authentic) Greek myths. For descriptions and purchasing information about these and other books, go to Find a Book.

Learn more about me on the Bio page, and about my writing at Writing. For more-detailed information about individual books, including reviews, awards, etc., click on a title in the right-hand column. →

Please consider buying books from your local independent bookstore or through Bookshop or Indiebound. If you can't or choose not to purchase from a bricks-and-mortar store, please visit Amazon, Barnes and Noble, BooksAMillion, or Powell's.

You can reach me through the Contact page. I love hearing from my readers, and especially enjoy meeting you in person at school and library visits. Find out more on the For Teachers page, which also has activities, quizzes, further reading, and more.
