I’m thrilled to announce that my young adult novel, THE APOLOGY BOX, is coming out this winter!! I’m so jazzed to have this book out in the world. I’m especially honored be working with my long-time writing partner and colleague, Cynthia Huijgens with Idle Time Press. Cynthia and I met at an Association for Writers and Writing Professionals (AWP) several years ago when we were both part of the Writer to Writer program. We both made such good friends from our cohort group and it just shows you how important it is to have a strong writing community. Not just because you might end up collaborating to publish a book, but for the encouragement, support and understanding that we writers can provide to one another.
Anyway – the book launch date is December 9th! I’ll be posting my pre-order information in a couple weeks. By the way, I LOVE talking about books, writing, education, incredible teens, and occasionally costumes and definitely cheese – so if you have a desire to have me come and speak to your class, book group, etc., please connect with me! In person events in the western Oregon area and virtual events anywhere!
