anthology announcement for blog

And one more book on the way…


Now that SUPER JAKE & THE KING OF CHAOS is at a bookstore/library/classroom (or home!) near you, I hope to meet as many readers, and potential readers, as possible! Also, if it is NOT at a bookstore/library/classroom near you, but you would like it to be, please ask the kind and lovely people in charge of ordering books to order SUPER JAKE!

Please visit me on Facebook at:

Here’s what the trades are saying about SUPER JAKE:

“The Millers’ love for one another radiates throughout Ethan’s witty, introspective narration. Jake is never a burden; his family members include him in fun activities and everyday life as best they can…. A warm, hopeful debut.”―-Kirkus Reviews

Aspiring magician Ethan, 11, learns the true meaning of magic in this charming and heartwarming debut. The author based Jake on her own son, and that portrayal lends authenticity to this funny and moving story.―-Booklist, starred review

A strong family story for realistic middle grade fiction shelves.―School Library Journal
