Kirkus review of The Lacemakers Secret


I write fiction and nonfiction for both adults and children. My 9th Chloe Ellefson mystery for adults and mature teens, The Lacemaker's Secret from Midnight Ink, (my 37th published book) is now widely available and I'm busy writing the 10th Chloe mystery for next year. 

My 20th American Girl book, Gunpowder and Tea Cakes: My Journey With Felicity, is the first new Felicity story in seven years. Readers make all this possible, and I'm very grateful!
