More books on the way!

Here’s a funny thing about publishing (and anyone in the business can tell you their own story about it): it’s nothing if not surprising. After a couple of years with no new deal announcements, now I have three within a few weeks.

I’m very pleased to have two picture books on the way with Godwin Books and another middle grade coming from Capstone. I posted the announcement for GREEN MACHINE: THE FOOD ENERGY CYCLE earlier, and here are the announcements for the other two.

Coming Winter 2020: My First Nonfiction Picture Book!

I’m so happy to announce that my first nonfiction picture book, GREEN MACHINE: THE FOOD ENERGY CYCLE, illustrated by Christophe Jacques, will be published by Holt/Godwin Books in winter 2020. It’s a rhyming ode to anaerobic digestion, and if you don’t think that sounds like fun, then you haven’t been to visit a farm’s anaerobic digester in the middle of January in northern New York.

What is anaerobic digestion? Short answer: a great way to make energy from organic matter like food & manure. See–fun! I’ll post more as the book’s production progresses.

I can’t wait to see Christophe Jacques’s art for this book. You can see his portfolio here. Super fun retro-modern, super kid-friendly.
