Her second book, The Misadventures of Marvin Miller, an uproarious middle grade novel, will be published this summer.

She has also illustrated the book "Sky's High Dreams: A Story of Schizencephaly" by Skylar Overman, and has illustrated the upcoming picture book series Songs My Mother Taught Me"

He was on a raft and suddenly the fireworks tipped toward him instead of up in the air! He managed to jump in the water to escape. I laughed so hard I cried and I decided to tell a story about all the silly things young guys do when trying to show off when trying to impress the girls they like. (less)

Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens
"All of you talked me into reading this book. The Goodreads reviews were virtually unanimously good, not just good, great. It had to be good, I thought. And because I needed an extra audiobook I bought it on Libro.fm and locked myself into reading it." Read more of this review »
