Hi, Everyone!!! I'm excited to share the Publishers Marketplace announcement about my new book SIX FEET BELOW ZERO.

My writing life began in 2004/05 when I joined a local IRL SCBWI critique group and the Blueboard. The friendships I formed here and the support of the writing community at large has made all the difference, and I encourage each of you to stick with your writing and illustrating goals. Things may not happen as fast as we want, but when we keep learning and evolving and stay connected, everything does have a way of working out.

Here's the announcement:

Children's: Middle Grade Fiction

Author of the CLAYTON STONE series Ena Jones's SIX FEET BELOW ZERO, in which a 12-year-old and her younger brother must honor their great-grandmother's final wishes by hiding her body in the basement freezer and pretending she's still alive, holding out hope of finding their aunt—the only person who can save them and their home from the horrible Grim Hesper, to Sally Morgridge at Holiday House, for publication in spring 2021, by Ginger Knowlton at Curtis Brown (NA).
