The first book is Emilie and the Hollow World, to be published in August 2013, with a sequel to follow in Spring 2014. It’s a steampunkish fantasy adventure, set in a secondary world.
I started writing Emilie in July 2009 when my husband was facing a lay off and The Cloud Roads had been on submission for about a year and still hadn’t sold. I finished it around December 2009, and it started out on its submission adventure around the summer of 2010, so it’s had a long road too. And I’m so so happy that it found a home with Strange Chemistry!
And I want to thank my agent Jennifer Jackson (Arcaedia) for believing in me and my crazy books.
