Thanks for the lovely review!:
“Ruby’s fiery nature leads to some rash decisions, but her flaws make her an extremely likable heroine. Her adventuring is balanced with light touches of romance, and there is more than enough intrigue to satisfy. Fans of Frostblood will find themselves smitten with this second installment, and the breathtaking climax will leave them eagerly awaiting the third.”
–Lynn Becker, blogger and host of Book Talk, a monthly online discussion of children’s books for SCBWI

Excited to announce I’ll be participating in Word on the Street in Toronto on September 24, 2017. Check out the list of attending authors!
Have I mentioned that the UK version of Frostblood has a map? The day I found out my book would have a map was one of those “living the dream” moments as an author. Because what reader of fantasy doesn’t adore a map?? As a writer, it’s so cool to see the world you dream up translated into a visual form.
If anyone is interested in how it was created, google the “macaroni map” method. I provided a very rough sketch of Tempesia using that method (yes, there was macaroni everywhere) and the artist made it beautiful.
I really enjoyed chatting with Jackie from the new Fictionist Magazine, which was created in March 2017, after a Tumblr post highlighted the need for a neutral YA-focused magazine.
Here I share some embarrassing moments and I say “you know” too much, but it was a really fun interview!
It looks like the Czech edition of Frostblood is expected to publish on August 7, 2017! Here’s the blurb from Goodreads:
Ledová krev (Frostblood Saga #1)
Plamen a led jsou v tomto světě nepřátele na život a na smrt, ovšem společně by mohly vytvořit sílu, která by mohla změnit vše.
I’m really excited to meet these wonderful authors!!!
Date and Location:
Chapters BramptonBrmapton, ON
