Launch Week Media Madness!


This week has been very exciting! The second book in SECRETS OF THE SANDS is officially out in the world and I am so proud of this book baby!

I’ll be chatting about the sequel on a panel with renowned Kidlit author, Kenneth Oppel (HATCH), this Sunday, Sept 27 at 1pm ET at Toronto’s Word on the Street – tune in from anywhere!

THE DESERT PRINCE was also featured on CBC!

→ “Here are the Canadian middle-grade books coming out this season we can’t wait to read.”

The SECRETS OF THE SANDS series has also been garnering some excellent reviews, so be sure to grab your copy and see what all the buzz is about!

A richly detailed, immersive read. – Kirkus

Will delight middle grade readers with its history, its setting and, most of all, its gripping adventure and mystery which, though resolved, offers more to come. – Canlit for Little Canadians

“I can hardly do better for an assessment than to quote my granddaughter with whom I shared the book. She said, “Gran, it’s AMAZING!” and “I am serious here. It is one of the ONLY books about ancient Egypt or Rome or wherever that does not have A SINGLE mistake in it about the myths.” So there you have it: at least one member of The Lost Scroll of the Physician’s intended audience was enthralled.” – CM Magazine

I found myself really into the characters and their story line – I was rooting for Sesha hard the whole time. I love reading about girl protagonists who aren’t afraid to get dirty and fix a man’s problem ;).  – Teachers Who Blog

Thanks to everyone who’s assisted me in this journey. I wouldn’t be here without the continued support of friends, family and of course, you, the reader.
