Virtual Visits!

 Hi Educators! 

I have been doing virtual visits and am really enjoying them! It's fun to talk to other humans across the web! :-)

If you are a school, library, conference, book club, home-schooling group, Girl Scout pack, or educational pod, please feel free to contact my virtual school visit representative.

Hang in there, everyone!

 I am soooo excited!! My new book, THE LION OF MARS, is publishing in January and I could not be more proud of the amazing cover! Check it out!

And here is a little bit about the plot:

Bell has spent his whole life - all eleven years of it - on Mars. But he's still just a regular kid - he loves cats, any kind of cake, and is curious about the secrets the adults in the US colony are keeping. Like, why don't have contact with anyone on the other Mars colonies? Why are they so isolated? When a virus breaks out and the grown-ups all fall ill, Bell and the other children are the only ones who can help. It's up to Bell - a regular kid in a very different world - to uncover the truth and save his family ... and possibly unite an entire planet.

For educators who would like to read my books to their students ...

I am getting a lot of requests from educators who would like to read my books online to their students who are at home. Random House and Scholastic have adapted their policies in light of the current situation. Just go here to see what you need to do to share one of my books from these publishers with your class.
Hang in there, all!
