Hello Readers! My next book, Salvation, came out in stores
on January 10th! Check out the summary on my What's Next
hope you will all enjoy meeting Salva and Beth as
much as I have enjoyed writing about them. This is my first contemporary YA novel, and it required rigorous research into flavored lemonade. Though truthfully the greatest challenge was trying to convince Salva to go home. He may actually be as stubborn as Aurelia. Speaking of whom, Aurelia, Robert, and I are grateful to everyone who joined us in Exile. The journey of our first sequel was quite a challenge! Please feel free to come visit with my characters and I on our blog, join us for an event, contactmeabout arranging your own event, or share book reviews and recommendations on Goodreads.
I know this is an author blog, but I am going to have to add another entry about figure skating. I think, as an author, you need to recognize the extraordinary in real life. I first saw Denis Ten skate at the 2009 World Championships. Live. He was an itty bitty fifteen-year-old from a country that had never produced an elite figure skater, and he was in seventeenth place after the short program.
