Greetings, friends! It’s been way too long. A little update (that you have likely already seen if we are social media buddies)…

My new middle grade book, TEN THOUSAND TRIES is now available for pre-order! (hopefully you’re not disappointed that this isn’t a twins announcement). TEN THOUSAND TRIES will officially launch on May 18, 2021. Yippee! It’s been a long haul with this one.

I just turned in the copy edits to Clare, copy editor extraordinaire. The things she catches that my editor and I missed (for instance, the mother had two different names! and let’s not even talk about my math skills) …whew, thankful for the detail-oriented copy editors.

I’m EXCITED for you to read this book. Here’s a summary:

GOLDEN “Macaroni” Maroni is determined to become master of his eighth grade universe by channeling his hero: international soccer superstar, Lionel Messi. But first he’s got to survive middle school, win the soccer championship, and prevent Lucy Littlehouse from moving away. If he can do that, then maybe he can prevent Dad from losing to the three worst letters in the alphabet: A-L-S.

Golden will find a way. Even if it takes TEN THOUSAND TRIES.

You’re going to laugh, you’re going to cry, and you’re going to love it 🙂

Here’s the gorgeous cover by illustrator, Abigail DeLa Cruz (the same illustrator that drew Guinevere’s cover).

Also! Subscribe to my Author Newsletter, where I’ll be updating more often, hosting giveaways, sending out signed bookplates, and providing fun links and backstory stories.

Happy November and happy reading!
