New Christmas Story for American Girl Magazine
I was happy to get an invitation from American Girl Magazine to contribute a holiday story this year. As usual, the illustrations are lovely, bright and happy. This story focuses on a girl who gets a little carried away with holiday cheer. (Just as I did tonight, thanks to Cyber Monday.) Happy holidays to all!
I write for girls. My books include AGNES PARKER...GIRL IN PROGRESS, AGNES PARKER...HAPPY CAMPER, AGNES PARKER...KEEPING COOL IN MIDDLE SCHOOL, OPHIE OUT OF OZ and BAD TICKETS.
I'm excited about the latest book for Knopf: THE AVIARY. It's a historical novel with elements of fantasy. (Ghosts! Enchanted birds!) It was very fun to write...
