What a magical day at the Princeton Children’s Book Festival! Thank you so much to the Princeton Library and Jazams Toys and Books for inviting me. It truly is a special event. As a pandemic debut, I haven't had an opportunity to connect with readers in quite this way and I loved every minute of it. Thanks to fellow Middle Grade Authorcade member @victorpineiro for keeping me company! Also, thank you to you, my wonderful readers. At the end of the event, they announced that The Gilded Girl was the third highest seller at the festival! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Also, I have to say a big thank you to my high school English teacher, Mr. O’Hara, for coming out to say hi! This man taught me how to write and was the first teacher to recognize that I loved storytelling. My books may not exist if I hadn’t been in his class.
What a wonderful time!
If you can't tell from our faces in this picture, Heather Kassner and I had so much fun during the virtual launch for THE TARNISHED GARDEN. Thank you to One More Page Books for hosting us! You can now watch the entire event on their YouTube channel!
Magical Towns, Dastardly Beasts, and Marvelous Maps!In these four new middle grade fantasies, four young protagonists must take control of their own destinies in order to save their homes, their futures, and the people they love.

Thank you so much to everyone who made The Tarnished Garden's launch such a fun week! I hope by my next book I'll be able to do an in person launch, but I love that I get to share this special day with friends and readers all over the world. Sam, our host from One More Page Books, told me that it was the largest virtual audience she'd ever seen at one of the store's events! Thank you for your love and support!
