What is your latest release and what genre is it? Living Rough (Orca Currents) – YA novel

Quick description: It is a hi-lo YA novel for teen readers. While it will appeal to reluctant or struggling readers, the theme will resonate with a wide audience. Poe, a homeless young teen, struggles to keep his living situation a secret.

What are you working on now?
While I hope that one of my latest three YA hi-lo novels gets picked up by a publisher, I am now writing picture books. One is currently with Lee and Low Books and my fingers are crossed! My newest endeavour is a picture book about ‘O’ – how busy it is being a number, letter and shape.

Cristy’s reading recommendation:
In my own genre, I really enjoyed Karen Spafford-Fitz’ latest hi-lo novel, Vanish (Orca Currents). Another YA novel I recently enjoyed was, Whatever (Ronsdale Press), by Ann Walsh.
