I'm the Co-Regional Advisor of SCBWI Florida. My most recent novel is a middle-grade from Simon & Schuster/Aladdin titled THE FIRST LAST DAY. It has been translated into Norwegian, Swedish, Finnish and Azerbaijani. 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. Learn more at:
