It’s been quite a busy year as an author, but packed with absolutely lovely surprises for this lucky little book of mine.
Some of the news I can share: two new sales to Brazil and Turkey, along with the novel’s nomination/shortlisting for both the German Buxtehuder Bulle Award and the German Children’s Literature Prize, the latter to be announced on Friday, October 16th, at the Frankfurt Book Fair.
Other news that has me bursting at the seams will have to keep, but as soon as I can share, I will.
That said, I had a great time answering questions posed by my Brazilian readers, book bloggers and reviewers about IF YOU FIND ME.
Agir Now even made the novel a playlist! (Number 9 has always been Carey’s anthem, very cool!)
I hope everyone is safe and well, and I wish you and yours a joy-filled and *glorious* Holiday Season!
So grateful and so proud to be nominated and on the master list.
Thank you Connecticut readers, teens and librarians! It’s an honor, truly.
Thank you, Green Mountain Book Award Committee and the Vermont librarians and teen readers!
It’s an honor, truly.

I’ve been receiving fan letters lately not only thanking me for writing IF YOU FIND ME, but for highlighting America’s wild horses and burros — people who had no idea the issue of wild equine capture and slaughter existed.
Those signing the petitions I share on Facebook alongside me, *thank you*. I’ve always believed we should use our voices for the greater good — for the voiceless, whether human or animal.
I love being an author, and I love how my authordom gives me a voice off the page and a chance to share worthy causes.
So … THANK YOU for reading, for writing me, and for using your voice to make the world a brighter place.
This is my fan letter to YOU. ❤️
