What I've learned in all the years since I began writing is that each of us has at least one special story to tell. Some stories are sad, some funny, but all are as unique as our fingerprints. We are storytellers, every one of us. Some of us just have to write those stories down. I didn't always want to be a writer though. What I longed for most was to be an ice skater, but when I was fifteen I moved with my family from New Jersey to California and there went the ice.
My first short story began with a journal entry written when I was nineteen, after a close friend of mine met with a tragic accident. Many years later, that same story became the basis for my first novel, How Far Would You Have Gotten If I Hadn't Called You Back. Many novels have followed, with another on its way, WOLF, the sequel to SHEEP. Writing is the hardest work I've ever done, but by far the most fun.
Welcome to my website. I hope you enjoy reading about my books, and my life.
WOLF, the sequel to SHEEP, a California Young Reader Medal winner, will be published in September 2013.
