I'm a writer who captures the pulse of adolescent confusion in my Young Adult fiction, Sliding on the Edge and The Princess of Las Pulgas. Of course, I often reveal a lot of my Old Adult confusion while doing that. My first Middle Grade fantasy titled Alligators Overhead went out to good reviews, so I wrote a sequel. I swore that would never happen. So much for swearing. Evernight Teen is publishing my next Young Adult novel called Sudden Secrets.

Young Adult what else? But I'm wondering if they can continue to call this category of fiction by that name much longer. It seems that a lot of Mature Adults are finding the writing and the stories captivating.

Maybe I'll start telling people I write MA. What do you think?
