Hey there Raki!

I'd LOVE for that to happen! It's a digital-first with Bloomsbury, so if it does well enough, there's a chance it could go to paperback. But, I'm not quite sure when or if that'll happen. Fingers crossed!(less)

Dana! Hi! I'm sorry, I didn't see this here!

I actually found him on Craigslist? A breeder was selling him. He was the runt of the liter, and she was getting rid of him for $20. He's been a part of my lil' family for eight years now. His name is Mittens.

And upkeep isn't bad! He has a big ol' cage, we clean it every other week or so, and he has a wheel for running around. They need a lot of exercise, so having a room that they can run around is good for them. (less)

Fun Fact: Tom Ryan's novel, Keep This To Yourself, sold to Albert Whitman the day my son was born.

His latest deal, happened on the day my wife and I went out and used a babysitter for the first time, seven months later.

It seems my kid and whatever Tom is up to, are linked.

Last year, Tom introduced me to his dear friend, Robin Stevenson. Together, they were co-writing a YA contemporary nove...
