I'm the debut author of NIGHTSHADE CITY (Holiday House, 2010), a middle-grade fantasy adventure featuring a cast of rats—both heroic and villainous. NIGHTSHADE CITY is a Bank Street CBC Best Children's Books of the Year, a Goodreads Choice Awards finalist and a semifinalist for the SCBWI Crystal Kite Award. THE WHITE ASSASSIN, Book II of the Nightshade Chronicles will release in October of 2011. My latest undertaking, CITY OF GOBLINS, an undersea adventure in modern-day Tokyo, is scheduled for publication in spring of 2012. I live in Chicago with my husband and our two (quite adorable) children.
“Fans of Redwall and the Warriors series will love this heroic tale of good versus evil in a subterranean society of rats. The world of the Catacombs is so compelling readers will wonder if it really might exist under our city streets. Expect great adventures in Nightshade City.” ~ Rick Riordan, Author of the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series
