My favorites were stories such as Donkey Skin, Diamonds and Toads, and The Three Little Men in the Forest. Most of my favorite YA novels share this common theme, and I can't get enough of these kinds of stories!(less)

Robert Pacilio Maureen--Hello again- Wow, I had no idea I had 215 friends. My newest novel "Meet Me at Moonlight Beach" is a romance and it is my best. It's on Barnes and Nobel's web and at their Encinitas store, Amazon (and as a Kindle) or order from me directly and I'll sign and pay shipping. Thanks for connecting with me on Good Reads.
