Hi! I’m an author who spends most of her time writing historical fiction for middle schoolers. I write about things in the past because I HAVE to know what it was like! When a piece of history grabs my attention, especially something with an unusual human connection, I dig and dig until I find the story behind the details. In this picture I’m in the Shetland Islands researching a scene for my first novel THE RUNAWAY’S GOLD. But I do most of my writing at our town library and in the messy office in our house.
