May 2008

Say what?

2011 is really coming to a close, it just zipped right past me! To summarize the year in one word: RAD!
I visited the set of the movie Radio Rebel in Vancouver this summer with my family. Radio Rebel is based on my first novel Shrinking Violet. We had an amazing two days with the cast and crew--featuring Debby Ryan as Tere (Tara). I was blown away by the talent and can't wait until the movie hits the DIsney Channel in early 2012!

My third novel Pure Red was released by Flux. I had an awesome launch party at Books & Books in Miami, complete with artwork by the local MIami painter, Jaques LaRoche.

I am almost finished working on my first middle grade novel and have started revising another YA novel. And of course one of the best things I did was visit schools and book festivals. The highlight--teaching creative writing workshops and then having students share their work at the end.

Here's a quick behind-the-scene look at Radio Rebel, check out

I will also have movie and book updates and contests on my web site coming up in the new year so stick around:

Have a happy, wonderful new year filled with family, friends and chocolate!
