My New Book!

I can finally announce my big news! Everyone is always asking, "What's next!?" Well, here it is:

Author of the debut IN THE AFTER, Demitria Lunetta's BAD BLOOD, about a 16-year-old girl haunted by dreams and compelled to cut herself until she discovers a family secret and a past full of magic that could both save her and put her in mortal danger, to Wendy Loggia at Delacorte, for publication in Spring 2017, by Maura Kye-Casella at Don Congdon Associates (World English).

I'm so excited to work with Wendy and Delacorte. I'll have more on BAD BLOOD soon!
