I am indeed writing more MG books! WILLOWS VS WOLVERINES, which is about a boys-vs-girls prank war at a sleepaway camp, is coming out in April of next year. I'm also working on a collaborative MG book with six other authors called SEVEN SIDES TO EVERY STORY, which takes place of the course of one night at a middle school dance. I hope to have lots more in the future!(less)

The Sandcastle Empire by Kayla Olson
"I had high expectations for this forthcoming debut, and the story far exceeded them. I mean, this book is strong. It’s high-concept and high-stakes (it plays out like a summer blockbuster), but the prose is just so gorgeous–almost poetic. I felt c..." Read more of this review »
