About & Contact


I’m currently on faculty at Solstice, Pine Manor College’s MFA in Writing Program, Pacem School and Homeschool Center, and Champlain College. I also regularly mentor children and teens in writing. In this interview with Tiara Marchando of Pine Manor College, we focus specifically on teaching writing.

For more information about me or my writing, go to this interview with Cynthia Leitich Smith. You could also check out my interview with Shelagh Shapiro at Write the Book. She interviewed me a second time in 2016. There’s also a 2016 interview up at Adventures in YA Publishing.
