Dee Romito’s middle grade novels, THE BFF BUCKET LIST, NO PLACE LIKE HOME, BEST. NIGHT. EVER. and POSTCARDS FROM VENICE, are available from Aladdin/Simon & Schuster, along with her debut picture book PIES FROM NOWHERE, from Little Bee Books. Watch for the FORT BUILDERS, INC. early chapter book series coming in 2020!

When she's not writing, you’re likely to find her on adventures with her husband and two energetic kids, at the local ice cream shop, or curled up in a comfy chair with her cats. She loves to read, travel, and giggle like a teenager with her friends.

My favorites are SAVE THE CAT by Blake Snyder, HOOKED by Les Edgerton, and WRITING THE BREAKOUT NOVEL WORKBOOK by Donald Maass.

As far as my favorite tips, remember that you need a character and a goal and then you make it harder and harder for the character to get to that goal. Keeping cause and effect in mind as you go from one event to the next is also helpful. Good luck!(less)

My son LOVED this book. And as soon as his friend across the street found out he had an early copy of it, she devoured it too. Then they had a long chat about it. Great to see such enthusiasm and discussion.
