I'm an adoptive parent and got interested in adoption first, then child welfare in general. I was on the board of our county child welfare program and got a real taste for the good/bad and in between of the way children are cared for and about. I also worked for Head Start coordinating parent involvement and social services. It's always been an interest but I haven't tackled it in fiction until now.(less)

I hope to. My publisher has the final say, but right now we have tentatively scheduled a novella in a Christmas anthology. We'll see.
