Yes, The Stroke of Thirteen is a sequel to "Where You Can See the Stars," but you don't have to read them in order.

[It's not! It's a standalone contemporary fantasy novel set in the real world. :)

Book two in the Heartfriends trilogy is tentatively titled The Shadow of the Endless Night. I don't yet have an estimated release date for that.](less)
Carrie Gessner Cookies, definitely! But I also enjoy pretzels (especially with hummus), sunflower seeds, and tea. Thanks for the question!

RELEASE: New Anthology

I'm pleased to announce that the anthology I've been working on with my classmates, The Secrets of Harrowgate Valley, is finally available! Though the eight stories can be read independently, they all take place at Harrowgate Valley University, which houses many secrets. We had a great time creating this world and working with each other, and we're eager for people to read what we came up
