My motto in life and in my personal blog is: If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all. But if you CAN say something nice SHOUT IT!!
So my journal will often shout out praise for favorite authors and exciting new YA books.
I'm the author of over 30 YA and middle-grade books. My latest series are DEAD GIRL, THE SEER and STRANGE ENCOUNTERS. I love to write about ordinary heroines who have amazing powers or stumble into magical mysteries. My previous series weree REGENERATION, MY SISTER THE GHOST, CHEER SQUAD and even a ghostwriting gig doing Sweet Valley Twin #59. I live in Northern California in the foothills where my office looks out on treetops, lakes and horses. Usually I write with my small dog curled on my lap.
