I got my start writing in a place a lot like this one, except it was back in the late 1990s when the Internet came in the mail on CDs, and all I wrote about was Star Wars. Since then I've written a few novels and a boatload of short stories. I also went to college, traveled the world a bit, and worked for several publishing companies. I now write and edit professionally. Someday, after I'm famous, I will change this box to read something snappy like, "I make up stories for young people. Sometimes they read them." But for now, we'll stick with this.
My latest book is a fantasy adventure called NADYA SKYLUNG AND THE CLOUDSHIP RESCUE, in which a twelve-year-old girl and a crew of orphans with special powers must rescue the adults on their flying ship after the adults are kidnapped by pirates. It'll be published by G.P. Putnam's Sons on May 15, 2018---WITH ILLUSTRATIONS BY BRETT HELQUIST (of Lemony Snicket's A SERIES OF UNFORTUNATE EVENTS)! I hope you guys will track it down---I got my start on Wattpad, I had my Wattpad fans in mind when I wrote the book, and it would mean the world to me to know you were reading it.
