Thanks so much for stopping by. Since you're here, I'm assuming you love middle-grade fiction. Me, too. I was blessed with parents who read to me from the time I was very young, but it wasn't until around fourth grade that I fell deeply, madly in love with books. Charlotte's Web, Where the Red Fern Grows, and a little later, The Outsiders, became three of my favorites and still hold a place of honor on my bookshelf today. I especially loved books about normal kids who faced tough situations and had a love for animals. So guess what type of books I most love to write? Yep, you figured it out ... books just like that.
I'm excited to introduce you to my latest middle grade: Justice for Joe! If you've read any of my other books you already know I love dogs, so you probably won't be surprised to learn a dog plays a central role in this story, too. A fun blend of time travel fantasy and historical fiction, Justice for Joe is about an introverted young girl who must find the courage to travel back to 1894 Ontario, Canada on behalf of animal welfare—specifically, to right a terrible injustice suffered by a puppy named Beautiful Joe. Like many of my books, it touches on some serious themes, but don't worry, everything turns out well in the end.
If you hop on over to my Books page you can learn more about Justice for Joe as well as all my other titles. And before you leave, surf around the site to learn more about me and see a picture of my latest rescue pup, Stella. Have any idea what breed(s) she might be? Email me your guesses, I'd love to hear them! And I promise to respond.
Thanks again for visiting!
