I'm a YA/Juvenile Fantasy writer, represented by Marietta Zacker of the Nancy Gallt Literary Agency, who just sold my first book, NIGHTSHADE CITY, to Holiday House Books! I live in Chicagoland with my fantastic and super handsome husband, Eric, and our two incredible kids, who are more adorable than all four Teletubbies holding puppies and dancing the Fox Trot. I love going to the movies, eating Chinese takeout (but only with chopsticks) and of course reading and writing my heart out! I love stories that make me smile when I read the ending, but leave me sad that I have no more to read. That's how I know I've read a great book!
