New Book Deal with KCP Loft


20161017_C2123_PHOTO_EN_797249A writer’s life is filled with endless cups of cold coffee, hunched shoulders and chronic sciatica from all the sitting, and of course there’s the ample amounts of self-doubt and criticism, but occasionally there are times when it’s all worth it. (Just reread that and excuse my facetiousness, it’s always worth it ­čśë ).

I am just a wee bit excited to announce my latest book deal with the award-winning Kids Can Press, a parent company of Corus Entertainment and an incredible publisher (some of my mommy friends may be familiar with their Franklin the Turtle series).

Kids Can Press recently started a new Young Adult imprint called KCP Loft, to be “expertly curated” by┬árespected editor Kate Egan ┬á(also maybe familiar: Kate was the editor of a little series called The Hunger Games, and is a rad author in her own right).

I am over the moon about working with such a fabulous editor and press and can’t wait for all of you to read Summer Constellations, due out in Spring 2018. I’m having a swell time working on the edits (currently at the point where I want to throw the computer out the window – fellow writers will be familiar with this stage of the process), and am having fun peppering the names of friends and family through the book ;).

Thank-you to all for your support and a special shout-out to my agent Ali McDonald of The Rights Factory for all her hard work and bearing with me in all of my most neurotic-writerly moments.

With much love and gratitude,
