Currently, I have three published books: a picture book, a middle-grade historical fiction novel, and a contemporary young adult novel. Here is some information about all three:
Maggie Mae, Detective Extraordinaire: The Case of the Missing Cookies (picture book, ages 3 to 8) (Guardian Angel Publishing 2014): Maggie Mae, detective extraordinaire, is on the case of who stole her grandma’s super-duper snickerdoodles. With her detective’s badge and notebook, she finds clues, interviews suspects, and sets a trap. Who did it–Grandpa, her brother Ben, or Toby the dog? Finally, she reveals the culprits and saves the cookies.
Finding My Place: One Girl’s Strength at Vicksburg (middle-grade novel, ages 9 to 12) (White Mane Publishing, 2012): Thirteen-year-old Anna Green can hardly remember life before the War Between the States touched her hometown of Vicksburg, Mississippi. for 47 days in May, June, and July 1863, the Union army bombs Vicksburg day and night, attempting to overtake the city. Anna longs for the days before Yankee bombs screeched above her, before her family was torn apart, and before they moved to a dark, damp cave to protect themselves from falling shells. During one terrible bombing, a tragedy strikes Anna and her siblings and changes their lives forever. Can Anna find the strength to keep her family together in the midst of war?
Caught Between Two Curses (young adult, contemporary novel) (2014, former publisher: Rocking Horse Publishing): Seventeen-year-old Julie Nigelson is cursed. So is her entire family. And it’s not just any-old-regular curse, either-it’s strangely connected to the famous “Curse of the Billy Goat” on the Chicago Cubs. Julie must figure out this mystery while her uncle lies in a coma and her entire love life is in ruins: her boyfriend Gus is pressuring her to have sex, while her best friend Matt is growing more attractive to her all the time. Somehow, Julie must figure out how to save her uncle, her family’s future, and her own love life-and time is running out!
