While my writing career so far has included historical novels (and I'll have more to come!), I'm so thrilled to be adding children's books to my repertoire and I'm very excited to announce the launch of my new middle grade biography series with Scholastic, featuring true stories from heroic women who, at a young age, accomplished daring feats of perseverance and bravery.
As a mama in the process of raising brave tiny humans, it's been so rewarding to bring to life these stories. With every word written I had my kiddos in mind. What would be appropriate? What would engage them? What would incite inspiration? I'm so excited for these books to release today as we kick off a brand new year -- and I hope the series will be an inspiration to your own tiny humans.
About the books
Do you've have a kiddo in your life who you think may enjoy these books? They're available online, in store, and look for them at upcoming Scholastic book fairs!
SIDE BY SIDE was chosen as an Editors' Choice by the Historical Novel Society in their August 2018 issue.
A very excitable thank you for the kind words!

Technically, Side by Side is Book 2 in the "Bonnie" series, but even if you haven't read Book 1, Becoming Bonnie, you can still read Side by Side. This baby stands alone! Though, I'd love for you to also read Becoming Bonnie ;)
