My newest novel is a middle-grade from Simon & Schuster/Aladdin titled THE FIRST LAST DAY. Soon it will be published in Azerbaijani, Russian, Norwegian, Swedish, and Finnish. I’ve also published two teen novels (DANCING IN RED SHOES WILL KILL YOU and PROM KINGS AND DRAMA QUEENS, both with Harperteen) and two chapter books, as well as short stories, poems and essays for children and adults. I have a master’s degree in English, and have taught writing on the university level. I’ve been a member of the Florida SCBWI for more than twenty-five years and am currently the Co-Regional Advisor for SCBWI-FL. I blog about writing at http://doriancirrone.com/welcome/blog/
