Uh, I am incredibly excited and honored to write a middle grade book featuring Black Panther.
I’ll be working with Marvel Press, which is an imprint of Disney/Hyperion.
It is an amazing opportunity. I love the Marvel Universe characters and Black Panther has always been one of my favorites. Bringing young T’Challa to life is going to be a blast! Look for it in January of 2018.
I’m psyched to be able to share the Big News. My publisher, Clarion Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, has just bought three new books!
It looks like I’ll be pretty busy for the next few years!
I can’t wait to get these new books into readers’ hands.
“A gripping tale enhanced by a convincingly detailed setting and drawing on classic fantasy memes.
I’m really pleased that The Mesmerist garnered a great review from Kirkus!
I’m really honored that The ILA (International Literacy Association) awarded Hoodoo the 2016 Children’s And Young Adult Book Award for Intermediate Fiction!
They are a great organization that does a lot of good work getting books into kids’ hands and promoting the importance of reading. It’s such an honor to receive this award!
You can read more about the ILA and see all the award winners here: ILA.
Pretty cool news. My wonderful editor, Lynne Polvino emailed to let me know that Hoodoo has sold as an audio book! But wait…there’s more. LOL. My second book, The Mesmerist also sold!
So now you’ll be able to hear my stories being read in your earholes! I have no idea who will be chosen to do the narration but I’m sure it’ll be someone awesome.
I’ll give more news when they are released as audio books.
