I'd love to introduce you to Penny Brighton, an impulsive young girl who tries so hard to prove her worth and bravery that she jumps headlong into a life and death situation in my latest novel, Three against the North, a historical fiction set in 1939 Juneau, Alaska. It's based on the life of Alaska's famous bull terrier, Patsy Ann, so if you love dogs and adventure, I think you may really enjoy it.
After that, hop on over to my Books page to meet several more great heroines including Rylee Willet from The Hidden Power of Dandelions, a young girl who must reach deep inside herself to find the courage to cope after the father she idolizes is paralyzed in an accident. Or Shannon O'Reilly from Just Left of Lucky, a girl whose passion for her little dog, Boone, helps her weather a storm of poverty and homelessness.
You'll also meet Poppy Parker from A Million Ways Home, whose calm life is upended when the grandmother who's raising her has a stroke and ends up in the hospital. Or spunky, sweet Piper Lee DeLuna, the star of both A Smidgen of Sky and A Sliver of Sun.
