Hi there and thanks for stopping by! I am an aspiring Middle Grade writer (that means books for kids ages 8 to 12 roughly). I’m currently hard at work on a fantasy I hope will appeal to boys (I have two, so I figure I’m something of an expert).
I won’t go into a long-winded story about being a writer since the age of eight, about always wanting to write, about reading a book-a-day in the summer as a kid. EVERY writer says that. All I’ll say is that it may or may not be true!
What’s true now, though, is that I love Middle Grade, especially older MG, where the books are bigger, loaded with magic, quirky characters, and sensational settings. I love all things Rick Riordan, and happen to live with a 11-year old Greek mythology expert (thanks to Percy Jackson).
“Did you know, mom, that Pandora’s box wasn’t really a box? It was a pithos.” Go figure.
I’ve learned a lot reading and writing MG, and I can’t wait to see what else I’ll find out on this journey.
