Sorry for the delay in reply! Thanks for the kind words! I'm thrilled that you enjoyed WHEN YOU WISH!! I had so much fun writing it. I wrote a novel called AFTER a year after I wrote WHEN YOU WISH, and it's also about a teen girl, but it's a bit more serious. I actually like it a little better than WHEN YOU WISH, just because it has a bit more depth. I hope you can find that one somewhere and that you enjoy it too!(less)

Notre-Dame de Paris will rise again

As I sat yesterday in paralyzed horror watching Notre-Dame de Paris burn, I couldn’t help but think of another Notre Dame—Notre-Dame de Reims, the largest cathedral in the Champagne region of France—and the thought gave me hope. That’s because the Reims cathedral, which looks remarkably similar and was built in the same style (French Gothic) and era (Ground was broken in Paris in the year 1163, in Read more of this blog post »
