No excuses except I’ve been busy. I’m thrilled to announce my debut novel, THEM CLACKITY, will be published by Atheneum (Simon & Schuster) summer 2022. My wonderful agent Ali Herring (Spencerhill Associates) sold my manuscript to the equally wonderful Julia McCarthy (Atheneum) and thanks to these amazing ladies, my strange and hopeful middle grade horror story is going to be a book.
This is literally and figuratively a dream come true. I’ve wanted to be a published author since I knew a published author was a thing one could be.
THEM CLACKITY is the book, and Evie Von Rathe is the hero, I wanted when I was a little girl. So this story is for ten-year-old me, and for all the kids like her – anxious and not-exactly-fearless, but brave and even a little badass nonetheless.
I’ll share news and details as they come. In the meantime, here’s the deal announcement. Yeah, I can’t believe it either.
As always, I hope you are well.
