I have written over 80 books for K-YA. Many are titles in my middle grade series: American Diaries, Survival, and Hoofbeats. The Unicorn's Secret and The Faeries' Promise series are for young readers.

Dark, atypical fantasy for teens and adults is my new love. My first YA novel,Skin Hunger, was a 2007 National Book Award finalist. Sacred Scars was released in 2009. The third book in the trilogy is finished and in the production process now.
About to start Chapter 75 ....all the odd numbers are Sadima's story. She was born in the first chapter of Skin Hunger. Her story has covered about 200 years so far. I have no idea how this will end. None. I know what I want to have happen. I don't think it can....maybe five more chapters to go? Maybe seven?
