Big Announcement

Welcome and thanks for stopping by! After months of waffling I’m finally taking the plunge into the blogosphere! For the last five years I’ve been writing fiction whenever I could squeeze the time inโ€”before the kids woke up, nap time, while I was waiting for the chicken to roast, when I should have been cleaning the house (which, sadly, gives you a pretty good idea of my housecleaning abilities). I am happy to announce that I have accepted an offer from Aladdin M!X (an imprint of Simon and Schuster) to publish my middle grade novel, Seeing Cinderella, in the spring of 2012.

This is literally a dream come true for me, and I’m so excited to share this news with you!

    Congratulations on being published! Your book sounds terrific. Goodness knows, I could have used a pair of magic glasses when I was in 7th grade. My shy, geeky 13 year old self could have used the help navigating the social aspects of middle school!
