Wishing one and all a healthy, happy, prosperous new year!

Among all the things that I can celebrate, one is submitting a teen adventure novel yesterday, one that I’ve been working on for six months. It’s always such a relief (also a letdown!) to finally turn it in to my agent. Except that now it’s time to get to work on my next! Maybe after the holidays…

This one is about a boy to stows away on a yacht for an adventure, only to find he’s in the middle of a people-smuggling operation. It is my 21st book. (Several others are being edited or waiting for publishing dates. I do have a middle-grade mystery-sports novel coming out in the spring.)

Again, happy new year!
