Hi there! I’m the author of over a dozen novels published by Penguin Random House, Scholastic, and Little, Brown, as well as a freelance ghostwriter and writing instructor. My books have received starred reviews from Kirkus, Booklist, and Publisher’s Weekly, and have earned honors including multiple Junior Library Guild selections, the CBCC Best of 2019 List, and the American Library Association’s Rainbow List and Quick Picks for Reluctant Readers List. I’m represented by Sarah Davies of Greenhouse Literary.
In the last eight years, I’ve led over 500 creative writing workshops and taught over a thousand writers. My YouTube channel covers various traditional publishing path topics including how to find a literary agent, how to co-author a novel, how to plan a book series, and how to start ghostwriting both independently and for publishing houses. My Bookshop page is the place to find writing craft books that I've reviewed and recommended on my channel.
