About this author

I have telling and writing stories since childhood. I took a short break to write dreadful poetry, and then a longer one while I worked as an attorney, writing legal briefs and telling stories about my clients. I have returned to fiction, and published two middle grade novels, No Castles Here (ALA Rainbow Book; Kirkus Review starred review) and Come Fall (CCBC Choices Book; Publishers' Weekly starred review), and one for young adults, Gil Marsh.

Born and raised in Montreal, I spend most of the year in New England and much of the summer on a lake in Quebec.

Beautifully drawn, but the story was a bit confusing. It did set up a wonderful, dark, and rich fantasy world with a promise of future stories.

I read this at the recommendation of someone who knows that I don't have much interest in Spider-Man comics -- not that I dislike Spider-Man, but rather that I find the story arcs for his various origin stories retread, and the action sequences will...more

I read the ARC. Beautifully written. I loved how fairy tales and folk tales were intertwined with the story. A hard and heartwarming tale, both at once.

A sweet, lovingly illustrated book about vaudevillians at their summer retreat, from the point of view of a townie. Read it in one sitting.

“The young man is both like and unlike us."
Oberon paused his perpetual motion.
"Like and unlike? Could he be a changeling, one of the Faery?"
I shook my head. "He is human. I am certain. But he sees the world as it is and not as humans would have it be."
(p63)”
A.C.E. Bauer, Come Fall

“Peeing is like a good book in that it is very, very hard to stop once you start.”
John Green, Paper Towns
