All Good Children go to Heaven (or at least to paperback and Booktrack editions)

A couple of cool things have happened this fall with my 2011 teen novel, All Good Children. First, All Good Children is now available in paperback! Orca Book Publishers has produced a gorgeous paperback version of the book. It’s blue, it’s ominous, it’s a keeper. Check it out in their Fall 2016 catalogue:   So now […]

Radio Interview at Noon

The interview I did in Prince Edward County last month (last post) airs at noon today on 99.3 County FM.

Dear Disappointed Fan

I received two letters from readers last week. The first was a thankful email from the parent of a reluctant reader, an 11-year-old girl who read Walking Backward and really engaged with the story. That was such a nice letter to receive! I answered it with a thankful email of my own. The second letter was an anonymous typewritten page sent to […]

Giving Away More Books

Today I’m a guest author on the awesome book blog, 10 Stories Up. Head over there to read my answers to some tough questions, like: Do you think the reason many adults condemn contemporary children’s literature is because they don’t (or choose not to) remember what it was really like to be a kid? and Tell us […]
