Let’s have fun together! I love to visit with kids for school or library visits, family literacy nights, book fairs, and more.
I wrote and published “Kat Flynn’s Guide to Getting Over a Crush” in 2013 to commemorate the 5th anniversary of Fact of Life #31. It works a little bit like a prequel to the novel, though not precisely (if I’d known I was going to write this story when I wrote the novel years ago, I would have written the novel a little differently…ah well). For example, there are two characters in “Kat Flynn’s Guide”–Mira and JT–who are not in the book, but I wish they were!
In this story, we get a more in-depth look at her crush on Manny Cruz and her attempts to deal with it. Download the format that works for you and enjoy!
