I write fiction and nonfiction for adults and children. The Chloe Ellefson mystery series is for adults and mature teens. Chloe #7, A Memory of Muskets, arrives this October from Midnight Ink. My latest non-fiction history, A Settler's Year: Pioneer Life Through The Seasons, is from the Wisconsin Historical Society Press. My 20th American Girl book (and 35th published work) arrives in early 2017! Readers like you make all this possible, and I'm very grateful!
