CLICK HERE actually WON the Colorado Book Award for Young Adult Literature! I was stunned and amazed. It’s like the Oscars where you don’t know if you’ve won until that night and when they called out the book title and my name, Isat in my chair shaking my head for a second, not sure I’d heard correctly. It was a great night and Julie Anne Peters and Victoria Hanley, whose books were also finalists, were so gracious and wonderful.

My second book, FACT OF LIFE #31, was accepted for publication by Knopf Books for Young Readers, which is an imprint of Random House. I’m very excited that the book has a home and absolutely thrilled with my editors at Knopf.
