I write books, mostly for people who are in upper middle grades or high school. I don't know why; ​I guess because I respect the work they do--exploring who they are, who they want to be, who they don't. 

My parents always said that if anything about me should deserve publicity, they would let me know. Still waiting to hear from them. But in the meantime, more and more young persons have read a few things I've written, and they sometimes have questions. I began to think, well, who knows what they might hear from my sisters. So it seemed important to give them a few lines of unbiased information.

You know how to read a website. There are only a few pages here -- books, bio, blog, and links -- and every word you read here is absolutely reliable.
