I had the pleasure of going to Sara B. Larson's launch party for DEFY last week. Her speech was fun and touching and hilarious and heartbreaking and real and so enjoyable. Plus we got to sing Happy Birthday to her five year old son, who is freaking adorable.
I write action / adventure books for middle grade readers, and I'm represented by Sara Crowe of Pippin Properties. I have two books released-- SKY JUMPERS and THE FORBIDDEN FLATS (both action / adventure, for ages 8 and up, with Random House Children's Books). I love happy kids even more than I love cookies, I make lists as often as I eat lunch, and I love having every light in the house on almost as much as I love writing.
