Beginnings and Ends

This is a beginning, because of an end. I’ve written lots of words. Over and over, trying to tell stories other people might like to read. And now it turns out the wonderful folks at Little Brown Books for Young Readers think I might be onto something. SCARLETT UNDERCOVER is coming out with them in Spring of 2015. That means an end to wondering if I’ll ever see my book on a store shelf. An end to hoping my daughters will get to see that if you work hard at something that matters to you — really hard — it pays off. And now I can begin wondering if people will love Scarlett and Decker and Mae and Reem and all the other people in Scarlett’s world. Because I do. And I can’t wait to share them with you.
