My debut novel, Riding Backwards, will be available from Simon Pulse in Summer 2012! Here’s a sneak peak:

Sixteen-year-old Sara and her mom are running away from home. But not until tomorrow. Tonight there’s one last dinner with Dad, who still asks why her dead brother is late for dinner. 

Sara’s mom says to meet her at the Dairy Dream. Then she never shows up. And everything in the suitcase Sara had packed has been put away. Neatly. Like her dad would do.

Where is Sara’s mom?  Will Sara find her before it’s too late?

Beginning at the end of March 2011, I’ll be blogging with a great group of YA writers at
