ANGER IS A GIFT has won the Schneider Family Book Award for Best Teen Book!!!

It has been an absolutely surreal week in my life, and I’m happy to say that my debut YA novel, Anger Is A Gift, has been awarded the Schneider Family Book Award “for a book that embodies an artistic expression of the disability experience for child and adolescent audiences.”

I’ll be receiving the award and grant for this at the 2019 American Library Association Annual Conference in Washington, D.C. in June, and my book will have that incredible little sticker/medal on it from here on out. I’m so blown away by the response to my book, and this was completely unexpected. Thank you for supporting me and my writing all these years. I can’t believe this is happening, BUT IT IS!

I’ll have more news soon about some really cool things! Until then: thank you.
