About this author

K.M. Walton is the author of the contemporary young adult novels, CRACKED (2012) and EMPTY (2013). She is represented by Jim McCarthy from Dystel & Goderich Literary Management.

K.M. Walton also co-authored a book on the teaching of mathematics called TEACHING NUMERACY: 9 Critical Habits to Ignite Mathematical Thinking published by Corwin Press.
