Biographical and Professional Information

I'm a children's author represented by Marietta Zacker of the Nancy Gallt Literary Agency. My first book, NIGHTSHADE CITY, is coming Fall 2010, from Holiday House Books for Young Readers. I live in Chicagoland with my fantastic husband, Eric, & our two crazy kids! I love stories that make me smile when I read the ending, but leave me sad that I have no more left to read. That's how I know I've read a great book! Need an author to speak at your school or event? Let me know. I'll bring my rats!
