Thank you for your kind support of my writing. As I have said often in the past, readers make the hard work of writing novels worth every second: the cramped neck, the aching hands, the numb feet, that dazed look in the eyes. My last novel was THE ONE-WAY BRIDGE (2013) but now my first middle grade novel has just been released! Who would have thought I'd write a book for young readers? I thank my amazing friend, the writer Kathleen Wallace King, for the challenge. It's called THE SUMMER EXPERIMENT. Are aliens visiting Allagash, Maine once again? If Robbie McKinnon and her best friend can only contact them, they're sure to win Science Fair and beat that nerdy Henry Helmsby. Summer vacation just got a lot more interesting! I hope adults will enjoy it, too. Thanks for reading.
