You’re only young once, but you can be immature forever~Germaine Greer


I am the author of two young adult novels, MISS FORTUNE COOKIE (Holt, 2012) and MY INVENTED LIFE (Holt, 2009). My short story, The Shark King, appears in an anthology called THE FIRST TIME.


Personal inventory:

1 amaZing husband,

2 laZy cats named Zorro and Zenobia

2 Zany sons.

I like to overuse the letter Z.


When I grew up on a sail boat, I shared forecastle with my sister and the sail bags. In the end, I managed to survive both seasickness and a personal terror of the ocean. And live to write stories. I hope you enjoy them.
