MIDDLE GRADE BOOKS
I write middle grade books because kids deserve an escape from their reality. Whether you escape into Day of Reckoning, where you'll discover an alternate, underground world and meet fantastical creatures and kids with special abilities. Visit a contemporary setting, as in Save the Lemmings, to learn how Natalie deals with bullying by classmates and the media. Or be transported into a fairy tale setting, as in The Weaver Tales, where the adorable-though pesky-gnome-elf, Unwanted, creates trouble for someone in each book. With these books you'll find yourself in another world where you're exposed to social skills, problem solving, and a range of emotions. All in the comfort of your own home (or school, park, or wherever you read.) Books are available in print, ebook, and some are available in audiobook.
