I'm the author of 45 books for young readers for all ages. Titles include the New York Times best-selling picture book Library Lion (illustrated by Kevin Hawkes), the middle-grade fantasy novels The Dragon of Trelian and The Princess of Trelian, and the YA novel Evil Librarian, which won the 2015 Sid Fleischman Award for Humor(!).

My newest book is the picture book Marilyn's Monster (Candlewick, March 2015), illustrated by the wonderful Matt Phelan. Next up will be THE MAGE OF TRELIAN (Trelian #3), coming in April 2016.

The next Trelian book is alllllmost done. Right now it's scheduled for Feb 2016. I'm sorry it's still so far away! Part of that is because I wrote another novel (my YA book Evil Librarian) in between writing the second and third Trelian books; part of it is because of publishing schedules and the amount of time it takes for production and covers and all those other things. :) Thanks so much for writing to let me know you liked the last book!
