Q: What one thing do you need to have when you write?

Q: Where's your favorite place to write?

A: In my sunroom in upstate New York.

Q: What are you working on now?

Two different middle grade books and an untitled young adult novel that my agent described as “the most disturbing thing he’s ever read.” Oops!

I love realistic books that include just a hint of fantasy.
