I was born and raised in Vermont where I began my love for reading and writing in local libraries and independent bookstores. My parents always like to remind me how well behaved I was growing up, EXCEPT in bookstores. I would run and hide between the shelves because I wanted to live there! I still kinda do... :) I moved to New York City after college and taught middle school English for 10 years in Washington Heights to the most inspiring, creative kids. Their excitement around books motivated me to pursue my other childhood dream, becoming an author for kids. I live with my family in New York City, but we travel to Vermont often to romp in the snow, stock up on syrup, and visit family.

I’m so happy you enjoyed JUST LIKE JACKIE. Thanks for reaching out! My next book, RIGHT AS RAIN, comes out in January 2019. It’s set in the Washington Heights neighborhood of NYC. It also explores family dynamics, the importance of finding a network of friendships, and discovering who is on your team and rooting for you no matter what. I’m really looking forward to its publication and I hope you enjoy it as much as JLJ. Thank you again! (less)

Thanks for reaching out. It means SO much to me that you enjoyed JUST LIKE JACKIE. I love hearing from teachers and students! You made my day! As for what's next, my second middle grade novel, RIGHT AS RAIN, is slated to come out in January of 2019, and I'm currently just starting to ink up some notebooks with a third book idea. RIGHT AS RAIN is set in the Washington Heights neighborhood of NYC (where I'm currently living, and taught middle school English for 10 years). I'm excited! I really appreciate you spreading the word for JUST LIKE JACKIE to your teacher friends. My hope is that it lands in many kid-hands :)

Thanks again!

Right as Rain by Lindsey Stoddard
"This was wonderful. Reminded me of (and referenced!) a lot of classic coming of age kids' novels but still felt fresh and new with its take on gentrification. Also reminded me of Jo Knowles' See You at Harry's in its depiction of sibling loss, and..." Read more of this review »
