It Ate My Sister, is a favorite book for youngsters ages 10 and up (and adults with a sense of humor).

“I write and tell stories for a living. No matter which genre I am working in, whether you are reading or listening, I hope that the stories cross boundaries and are universal in their appeal to people of all ages and cultures.”
