Magic in the Middle

Success! You're on the list.


What should I do with your videos?
My hope is that you’ll share them with your students or young readers to get them excited about a book they might otherwise not have read or known about. (But it’s also okay if you are here because you’re one of those adults who knows the best books are all written for kids!)

How often will I get emails?
I’ll share a new book talk on the first Wednesday of each month; I generally also run a giveaway that day for a chance to win a copy of the book. As a subscriber, you’ll also received (very infrequent) newsletters featuring exciting news about my books.

Will you share information about you and your work?
For information on me, my published books, and exciting updates, please sign up for my (very occasional) newsletter.

Will your book talks always be about fantasy books geared for 10-14 year old readers?
Upper middle grade fantasy is my sweet spot, although I may sneak in books from another genre from time to time if I feel especially passionate about them.

Can I send you a copy of my upper middle grade fantasy for inclusion in the program?
Traditionally published authors or their publishers may contact me at to obtain my Netgalley or Edelweiss Plus email address to share eARCS or digital copies, but there is no guarantee that any given story will be selected for the program. Because of the limited spots available, each title is carefully chosen.

Why don’t you feature self published titles?
Because my reading time is limited, I’m not able to keep up with reading both traditionally published and self published titles.

How can I access videos from past newsletters?
You can find all of my videos on YouTube!
