about me

Thanks to everyone who helped Fingerprints make the Desk! :-D

I live in the southwestern U.S., where we redefine "dry," but it snows every winter. By day, I'm a high school math teacher for deaf students - how's that for a niche career? My students are convinced I'm going to be a famous author. Still waiting to see if the rest of the world gets the memo. ;-)

As promised, here I am, at last. :) Keep in mind that I’m far more familiar with YA than MG, though my first three years of teaching were exclusively 12 and 13-year-olds. Plus, my ears are tuned for American. That should give you an idea how much salt to use with my comments. ;) The pitch is ... view book

Sorry again for the delay in getting to this. Before diving in, I really wasn’t sure what kind of read I was in for. I think that’s because the title evoked one type of response from me, while the pitches evoked a very different one. The first paragraph of the long pitch had me a little confused... view book

Disclaimer: This is the opinion of a general reader, since I know next-to-nothing about writing this kind of novel. The pitch hints at some potentially interesting facets, but I’m not certain it would win my attention in a bookstore. The MCs are a neuroscientist (unsure why this is capitalized)... view book

There are just a few places where the imagery left me behind. For instance, “His chest was whitened by an abu... view book
