What are you working on next?
I just wrapped up a stageplay version of my YA novel, Upside Down in a Laura Ingalls Town; getting ready to edit an Appalachian adult novel that I wrote a few years ago; and my agent is currently shopping an adult Bildungsroman. (A bildungsroman is a coming-of-age novel that takes place over many years.) : )

When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I spend my evenings as a writing specialist/tutor and study skills expert, helping kids of all ages feel more confident in everything they do.
