The Friendship Experiment meets A Rambler Steals Home


The thing with publishing is that it’s always going to be easier (and more fun!) to navigate if you have some people by your side.

The thing with those people is that you didn’t know you would become friends, but you did.

I feel super lucky to have bumped into Erin Teagan along this road. We share a publisher and an editor and lots of the nitty gritties of this whole thing, and it’s been so wonderful to know her. She is smart and kind and has been the best encourager. And here’s the cover of her middle grade novel, The Friendship Experiment

Don’t you love it? You can get it on November 1st, 2016!

I’m leaning on her every move because my book comes out a couple months later, in February of 2017. Have you seen its cover yet?


And over the past year-ish, we’ve both been lucky enough to get to know many other debut middle grade authors. If you are looking to spruce up your shelves, this is a spectacular place to start.
