Award Nomination

One of my Works-In-Progress was nominated for the Joan Lowery Nixon Award at the 2016 Houston SCBWI conference. The winner will be selected by Joy Preble and will get a year’s mentorship from Joy. Fingers and toes crossed!

SCBWI stands for Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators. The conference, on October 22, was fantastic! I got to sit at a table with several multi-published authors — Kimberly Morris,Sherry Garland (left) and Kathy Duval (right).

New Cover Reveal!

celia-cover-8-5-x-5-5-72dpiI’m so happy to announce the new cover for CELIA AND THE WOLF is finally finished. Isn’t it brilliant? And scary? I think Middle Grade readers will enjoy it as much as the five-star story inside.

(Check out the great reviews HERE.)

And it’s just in time for Halloween!

For those of you who haven’t read the story yet, a terrible villain is planning something truly awful for the night of All Hallow’s Eve. Celia and her werewolf friend, Remy, must find a way to stop him before he destroys Remy’s family.

The paperback version of CELIA AND THE WOLF is available to order at Amazon and other booksellers, such as Barnes and Noble. It’s also available as an e-book for Kindle and Nook.
