Summer Reading Challenge!

June 12th, 2014

Hi Everybody,

I hope your summer is off to a great start and that you have some fun summer reads on your nightstand table.  Special thanks to some special fans who I know will be reading this summer.  Deanna, Ava, Sarah (who read a book in under a day!) and Kayla . . . I’m so glad you like the books!

So here’s the summer reading challenge!  Actually, I’ll give you two and you choose which you like best.

Challenge #1:  How many Mallory books can you read? You have all summer to do it.  Keep a list and send me a note and let me know how it goes.  There are 21 books all together and 22 (Mallory McDonald, Baby Expert) will be out in August.  Look on my blog for a full list of the books.

Challenge #2: How fast can you read a Mallory book?  There’s no rush, but if fast is your thing, let me know how you’re doing!

Happy summer and happy reading!

Two new books coming soon!

Hi Everybody,

I’m super excited about the two newest releases in the Mallory and the April series!

In #22, Mallory McDonald, Baby Expert, Mallory’s best friends, Winnie and Joey, become older siblings to baby Charlie and Mallory has to get used to all the changes a new baby brings!

Mallory McDonald, Baby Expert

And in #3 Truth and Kisses, April Sinclair is torn between two boys!

#3 Truth and Kisses

Both books will be out later this summer. I hope you’ll read them!

Talk to you soon!

Thanks for all the great letters!

Hi Everybody,

Thanks to all of you for being such great readers and fans! I’ve gotten so many great letters about the Mallory books.  I’m so glad you like reading about her.  Special thanks to Stella, Lavada, Angela, Ashely, Ally, Shelby, Amelia Claire, Anna, Larah and Dakota for your great letters.

Several of you asked if I like being an author.  The answer to that is a huge YES!  I started writing stories when I was in third grade and I’ve always loved books and reading. I hope you do too.

Keep reading!

Talk to you soon!
