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.

I am a fan of Michelson, and this book did not disappoint. I wish I grew up with such wonderful history books when I was a child.

What a wonderful introduction to an important historical character, focusing on one lesser known aspect of Booker T. Washington's life. The illustrations are evocative and beautiful. Well done!

What an excellent graphic novel for people of all ages--which is why I love it. Middle graders will eat it up, as will teenagers and adults. Vernon gives us many levels to this story while keeping it accessible. The black and white art is beautiful, ...more

A beautiful middle grade read. The tension builds wonderfully, the characters feel so real. And I loved the illustrations! (I don't know why reviewers don't also focus on those in middle grade books when they are so important to the readers.)

The Art of Secrets by James Klise

I enjoyed this book and the mystery that twisted and turned from unreliable narrator to unreliable narrator. Klise does a great job slyly telling us the truth without ever ramming it down. Well done.

“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)”
