The story behind the story

I get a lot of mail about my second middle grade novel, NO CREAM PUFFS. I think there are many reasons this book resonates with people. It contains lots of juicy themes -- mothers and daughters, first crushes, sports, figuring out who you are and best friend drama. Linda Crotta Brennan, author of When Rivers Burned: The Earth Day Story and The Black Regiment of the American Revolution, recently featured an interview with me on the story behind the story of No Cream Puffs. It was such fun to think back on writing this book. Thinking about Madison and her adventures - spying on the neighbors from her roof, baseball with the boys, her talks with Huey -- always brings a smile to my face. Thanks, Linda! Website.
