I lived in Korea for 8 years teaching at an international school. While living there I traveled extensively throughout Korea as well as fell in love with the culture and people.

As you know, international schools are very unique in their own right. Our school had students from over 50 countries, but 50% of them were American. It's a very diverse setting and I knew it would be such an unusual place to set a book.

I was teaching middle school at the time and doing a unit on Greek mythology. Since we were at a school in Korea, I thought it would be neat to do a comparative study on Korean myths. I did a little research myself and as I did, I came across the myth of Haemosu and Princess Yuhwa. What a story! After reading it, I couldn't stop thinking about the what if and what happened next. And so the Gilded series were born!(less)

Yes, SILVERN (Gilded series book 2) is coming out on Sept. 23, 2014. There will be a 3rd (there better be after the end of book 2 ;-) otherwise some of my fans are going to come after me!) and it will be the final book in the series. But I don't know when it will be released. Hopefully I'll know more soon to share with you!(less)

Reading of 1st Chapter of THE PRINCESS AND THE PAGE

A HUGE thank you to Scholastic for allowing me to read the 1st chapter of THE PRINCESS AND THE PAGE during school closures! Many of you have asked me to read the first chapter while you are doing your part in social distancing. I’m so proud of all of you for staying home even though I know it’s tough. Remember you can visit my YouTube channel for videos or go to The Gilded Series website for games

I hope you like the books! And yes, I have seen the Lizzie Bennet Diaries but not Emma Approved. Those are so fun! Thanks for recommending them!


Miranda Thank you so much for accepting my friend request! I'm really looking forward to reading Gilded and Silvern.
P.S. I swear I wasn't creeping but I saw that you're a fan of Jane Austen and I was wondering if you saw the YouTube web series The Lizzie Bennet Diaries and Emma Approved. If you haven't I totally recommend checking it out!
