Coming to your plate/shelf spring 2021!
The lovely middle grade author of Kat Greene Comes Clean, Melissa Roske, has invited me to do the Proust questionnaire on her blog today! And check out some of the other authors she’s interviewed while you’re there.
Today is the publication day of The Friendship Lie, my middle grade story of friendship gone wrong in a zero-waste world. (Maybe it’s not exactly zero waste, but the main character’s father wishes it was.) I’m so pleased to be able to share my first ever post for Nerdy Book Club on publication day! I give a little personal context for why I wanted to create a character who doesn’t try to cover up how crummy she feels a lot of the time.

Superstar 10-year-old blogger Bridget interviewed me about being a librarian and a writer. Be sure to check out her other interviews and book reviews!
THE FRIENDSHIP LIE comes out in less than a week! You can hear me talking with fabulous crew of Booked All Night about all kinds of book stuff, including one of my favorite questions ever: was there anything I had to cut from TFL during edits that I really miss? All I can say to that is, RIP Lulu Van Robot. You were too good for this world.
Misa Saburi and I have another picture book coming in 2021!
