Meet My Editor

This is my talented editor, Michelle Frey, executive editor at Knopf Books for Young Readers.

Michelle and I are about to begin revisions on my third novel. It is a story very loosly based on a little girl I met at a carnival during my reporting days. Publication is planned for 2013.

I can hardly believe enough time has passed for me to write three novels since I met Michelle at a SCBWI writer's conference in Sturbridge, MA, in 2002.
I'll tell the story of how we met (and how Michelle had me doing cartwheels all the way home) when author and friend Linda Crotta Brennan interviews me for her blog on Oct. 11.
