"It sounds simple, but it’s true. If you want to be an author you must master your craft. Try, fail, and master again. Everyone’s road to publishing is different and few of those roads are easy. Easy isn't rewarding. Keep moving forward!"


★  My agent is Marietta Zacker of Gallt & Zacker Agency, and yes, she’s awesome and amazing and everything an agent should be! 

★  The Nightshade Chronicles is published by Holiday House, who has been in the business since 1935! They are the first American publishing house ever founded with the purpose of publishing nothing but children's books. I’m honored and thankful to have my books published by such an esteemed house. 

★  I love speaking to kids and adults about all things writing. I have a list of topics you can choose from and am also happy to put build a custom presentation for you. Please go to the School Visits page for more information. 

★  The Nightshade Chronicles’ covers and interior illustrations are by Omar Rayyan. He’s illustrated many, many children’s books and he’s known as the “Animal Guy” for a reason! His talent knows no bounds! Please check out more of his work on his website at Studio Rayyan

★  My books are available in hardcover, paperback, and e-book.
