I have some other pretty cool OTHER news to report, which is that READY OR NOT, my second middle grade book, was released by Young Dragons Press on August 29!

Ready or Not, the sequel to Summer of L.U.C.K. (Young Dragons, 2022), features timely themes like dealing with life’s unfairness, finding courage, and the power of friendship.

Both books are set at a summer camp, with Summer of L.U.C.K. introducing Darby, Naz, and Justin, three struggling kids who stumble on a magical carnival that changes their world.

Ready or Not, which takes place a year later, features more magical adventures with the three friends, but it spotlights thirteen-year-old Justin, who faces a tricky choice: stand up to bigotry or let fear hold him back.

Autographed copies (personalized too!) of both are available from Children’s Book World. (under the Signing Options box, in the field asking “What school…,” put “none”)

Summer of L.U.C.K. and sequel Ready or Not
are available in hardcover (Summer of L.U.C.K. only),
paperback, and e-book.
Order an autographed copy (personalized too!)
from Children’s Book World!
Also available at
IndieBound, Bookshop, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Google Play,

If you decide to pick up one or both, perhaps you’ll consider rating it on Amazon and/or Goodreads, and/or leaving a few words about what you think on your social media.
