I'm the New York Times best-selling author of 49 books for young readers for all ages. Titles include the award-winning picture book Library Lion (illustrated by Kevin Hawkes); the middle-grade fantasy novels The Dragon of Trelian, The Princess of Trelian, and The Mage of Trelian; and the YA novels Evil Librarian (which won the 2015 Sid Fleischman Award for Humor), Revenge of the Evil Librarian, and Curse of the Evil Librarian.

I also work as a freelance editor and private writing coach and teach in Lesley University's MFA program in writing for young people.

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!
