History …

Mystery…magic…heroines who discover their own unique strengths and abilities, and heroes who are worthy of them…the perfect ingredients for a book!

Well, that’s what I think, anyway.

You’ll find these ingredients in my young adult historical fantasies Bewitching Season,  Betraying Season, and Courtship and Curses, all from Henry Holt Books for Young Readers, and now in Charles Bewitched, an e-only novella.  Please visit the Young Adult Books page above for more info, including reviews, notes on the history behind the stories, extracts, and other fun stuff.  I’ve also branched into books for adults with By Jove, a contemporary fantasy–please visit the Adult Books page for more info! And visit the News page for more exciting book news!

By_Jove_500Librarians and Booksellers and Media folks, there are special pages for you with media info and book discussion guides. Information on scheduling an author visit with me, and a new section on Writing Resources, will be posted soon.

If you love history, I co-host a blog with my dear friend and fellow author Regina Scott called NineteenTeen, where we blog about aspects of 19th century teen life (and talk about all the really cool stories and facts that we can’t necessarily fit into our books.  I hope you’ll stop by.
