Managing Director of Short Stories Bookshop and Community Hub, and independent bookstore in downtown Madison, NJ. It's across from an ice cream shop, so you probably should come and visit.

For sixteen lovely years I worked at DK Publishing where I created Star Wars Reads Day and helped get kids excited about reading non-fiction.

Co-author of The Happy Book, The Secret Me Book, The You and Me Book, and The Big Me, Little You Book. My latest title, This Book is About You, will be out in June 2017 from DK.

I live in Madison, NJ with my husband and three cats. I try to talk to my mom on the phone every day.

Bug Girl by Benjamin Harper

I'm usually not a reader of middle-grade fiction, but that didn't stop me from loving Bug Girl. It's very silly and very fun and perfect summer reading. Bug Girl and her pal Vincent have adorable chemistry and the mean-girl details of Bug Girl's rela ...more

Gorgeous. Brimming with of-the-moment issues (racism, gun control, mental health) without ever veering into preachy territory. It's a damn fine book I'd recommend to any reader, teen and beyond.
