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.
