About this author

I'm a writer and editor in Austin, Texas. My novel The Unexpected Miss Bennet came out in 2011 from Robert Hale in the UK and from Penguin Berkley in the US.

Mary is bookish, a bit priggish, determined to stand out for her accomplishments, and is a typical middle child. So naturally I had to write about her!

"While I love Karen Russell sentence-by-sentence and I loved the characters and the setting of this novel, this just wasn't my favorite of her efforts. That title still goes to Sleep Donation for me."

Emilie and the Sky World was a fast-paced adventure that is perfect for the YA reader, boys and girls alike. It reminded me a lot of A Wrinkle in Time, and I can't think of any higher praise. Emilie's a great character, and so are the secondary chara ...more
