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, and now Skin Deep, releasing in April 2016–please visit the Adult Books page for more info!

NineteenTeenIf 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-behind the stories and facts that we can’t necessarily fit into our books.  I hope you’ll stop by.

For more about…oh, you know how websites work.  Go poke around and have fun.  And feel free to contact me if you have any questions or comments.  I’d love to hear from you!
