Hello and thank you so much for inviting me to your blog today to talk about the view inside my writing space. In my house, I have two very different and distinct writing spaces.
I love having my own little corner that is all mine. As you can see, I had my book covers made into posters and there is plenty of room on the walls for future covers. In fact, the cover for my newest book, Millicent Marie is Not My Name, due out this fall, is framed and ready to take a spot on the wall. Generally, I do all of my administrative tasks in the office – editing, bookkeeping, answering emails, and anything else related to writing.

With fourth grade finally winding down, 10-year-old Nathan Rockledge is looking forward to a fun and relaxing summer at home with his friends. That is, until his mom decides he has to go to overnight camp with his annoying older sister. When his best friend Tommy decides to tag along, Nathan thinks maybe his summer won’t actually be so bad. After all, he does get to be away from his mom's awful cooking for an entire six weeks.
Amongst Color War competitions, a flaky counselor, and a bully named "No-Neck,” Nathan turns to his trusty sketchpad, transforming himself into Nate Rocks: 10-year-old extraordinaire. His speedboat ready for action, Nate saves the day time and again from the perils of floods, snakes, ghosts, and even the most wanted criminals.
Join Nathan, Tommy, Abby, and a whole new cast of characters as Nate Rocks once again proves nothing can hold him back in this second book of the Nate Rocks series.

As a children's librarian, I'm always looking for books that boys will enjoy reading--the Nate Rocks series fits the bill. Full of adventure (even if most of it is in his rich fantasy life), Nate Rocks the Boat takes us to summer camp with Nate where he encounters bullies, ghosts, and runaway vans. This book is easy to read and sure to be a hit with the boys and girls in my library. The book is intended for ages 8-12, but their parents will enjoy it as well. I'm looking forward to the next episode in the Nate Rocks series.
