Spliced Selected for One Summer, One Book Teen Author Tour!

I’m incredibly excited and honored that Spliced has been selected as the 2020 One Summer, One Book title for Montgomery County, Pennsylvania! The original plan for this summer had me visiting libraries across Montgomery County as part of the Teen Author Tour, but due to the pandemic, most if not all of those visits will take place virtually, but they'll still be a blast!


In 2018, I had a great tim

Zoë Sharp Hi Jon

Thanks for Friending me. How did you get on with the Cormac McCarthy? And how did work on DRIFT go?
