It's been a little while since I've sent out an update--apologies for that. I do have some good news to report, though. I will be the keynote speaker at the Riverside Friends of the Library Annual Meeting next Sunday, April 27th, in Riverside, CA. More info is in the attached flyer. It's open to the public, and $15 includes lunch as well as the meeting and reading. If you're in the area, I'd love to see you there! Copies of my first two books will be available for sale and signing.

My friend Sheila Ruth, who blogs about Fantasy and Sci-Fi books for kids and teens over at Wands and Worlds, wrote up a really nice review of Underneath:

Thanks, Sheila!

I wrote a fun guest post last month for the librarian blog STACKED for their Women's History Month series about girls in YA literature. My post was a top 10 list entitled Girls Kicking Ass With Their Brains, and featured some of my favorite protagonists in (mostly) recent YA and middle grade books:

Lastly, here's a bit of a teaser for my new book, The Truth Against the World, coming out in JUNE (!!): the final jacket copy from my publisher. (Stay tuned for info on book release festivities...which I have yet to figure out!)
A transatlantic paranormal mystery that spans generations

When Olwen Nia Evans learns that her family is moving from San Francisco to Wales to fulfill her great-grandmother’s dying wish, she starts having strange and vivid dreams about her family’s past in the old country. But nothing she sees in the dreams—the people, the places—makes any sense. Could it all be the result of an overactive imagination . . . or could everything she’s been told about her ancestors be a lie?

Once in Wales, she meets Gareth Lewis, a boy plagued by dreams of his own—visions he can’t shake since the day he met a ghost among the misty cairns along the Welsh seaside.

A ghost named Olwen Nia Evans.
