This is my first book published by Doubleday, which has an illustrious history. It's over a hundred years old, and in its early days featured authors such as Somerset Maugham, Rudyard Kipling, and Joseph Conrad--more recently John Grisham. Its parent company, Penguin Random House, is the largest publisher in the world, and home of my favorite author, Dr. Seuss. So I'm happy to be affiliated with both.
It will be out in summer 2020.

- We're anxiously awaiting the publication of Naughty Ninja Takes a Bath in December (Amazon First Reads) and January (official publication date).
- We have three manuscripts in circulation with editors, I'm still cranking on YA novel Imagine, Arizona, and I hope to have at least one more picture-book manuscript done by the end of the year. I'm headed to a picture-book writer's retreat in two weeks, which should provide inspiration and/or feedback.
