After obtaining my master's degree in '01, I decided to nix the idea of a full-time job in order to pursue a writing career (my lifelong dream). A mere (ahem) nine years (and half a dozen worn-out computer keyboards later), I released my debut YA novel, A BLUE SO DARK, with Flux. When A BLUE SO DARK received a starred review from Booklist, and was named one of Booklist's Top 10 First Novels for Youth, and won both a silver medal from ForeWord Reviews Book of the Year and a gold medal in the IPPY Awards, I swore all the years of hard work were worth it. I'm also thrilled to announce that my second YA, PLAYING HURT, was relased by Flux in '11; my first middle grade novel, THE JUNCTION OF SUNSHINE AND LUCKY, is forthcoming from Dial.
